WISIP 2017: Los Angeles Companies Provide Paid Summer Internships to Our High School Dreamers

Gaining workplace experience as an intern before beginning your first job is a key to success for many of us. Our Work is Success Internship Program (WISIP), now in its second year, helps our high school Dreamers gain this critical experience and prepare for success in the workplace. WISIP provides various workshops throughout the summer to participating high school Dreamers. These workshops address a variety of workplace-related topics and help our Dreamers improve many important skills, such as resume writing, networking, organizing, and communicating in the workplace. At the end of the program, the Dreamers have the opportunity to apply for paid summer internships with various Los Angeles companies. This year, eleven Dreamers participated in the program, and we are proud to report that all eleven earned an internship!

We Are Deeply Grateful to the Following Los Angeles Companies for Offering Internships to Our Dreamers
