The Ohio Career Exploration Internship Program is an excellent opportunity. As a business, you can hire a high school student enrolled in the 11th or 12th grade as an intern through this program and get reimbursed for 50% of the intern’s salary, up to $5,000.
This is a win-win. A high school student can learn valuable skills and benefit from important career experiences. A business can gain some additional assistance at a reduced cost. For more information and the application, go to Ohio Career Exploration Internship Program.
