Looking for a summer internship?

The Future Leaders Project is an initiative of Workforce Southwest Washington, Columbia River Economic Development Council and WSU Vancouver that seeks to connect students from historically marginalized communities with Clark County employers and provide them with tools to thrive as they prepare to enter the workforce.

Selected students will benefit from:

  • A $3,000 (stipend) paid summer internship at a Clark County business
  • Approximately 20 hours of work per week from June to August
  • Ongoing mentorship and professional development opportunities during fall and spring semesters
