Paid Summer Internships for LA County Juniors/Seniors in High School


TIP (The Intern Project) provides outstanding high school learners from schools across L.A. County with the chance to work in dynamic career areas through internships of four or more weeks during their summer break. Please note that priority will be given to learners with high needs.

Ideal TIP candidates are responsible young adults completing their junior or senior year at an L.A. County high school, with a record of high academic achievement (GPA of 3.0 or better), consistent attendance, knowledge and use of social media, and, above all, have a passion to work in one of these identified fields: arts, media and entertainment; energy and environment/business; health science and medical technology; and government, philanthropy and social impact.
