Broader Horizons is a paid summer internship program for youth between the ages of 14 and 17 who have little or no job experience. Interns who qualify for the program work twenty hours a week for six weeks in various town departments, community agencies, or local businesses.
Students participate in a fifteen-hour job readiness and basic skills training where they learn financial literacy, job expectations, and employment skills. Job assignments are based on intern’s area of interest and proximity to work sites. Due to a limited number of available positions, admission to the program is competitive and based on maturity, submission date, and town residency.
