We are excited to share that First Workings and our Founder an Chairman, Kevin Davis, was featured in the U.S. News & World Report’s article, The Rise of High School Internships. The piece covers the rise of high school internships and how these opportunities can be beneficial to young people.
“Interning with local companies, nonprofits or community organizations can be an educational alternative to the low-wage work often offered to teenagers, and it can be an asset on college applications. Kevin Davis, founder and chair of First Workings, a nonprofit that pairs low-income students with paid internships, says high school internships can also help students develop professionally.
‘Through the internship experience, high schoolers gain the confidence to succeed in their chosen path,’ he says.”
