The Supported Internship Option builds on the skill set an individual has built/refined in The Work Readiness Initiative (WRI) or at an existing volunteer site. The internship option provides individualized internship support to individuals looking to continue their internship experience after they have graduated from WRI or once they have decided to take the next step from volunteer site to a more focused internship opportunity.
Instead of reporting to one of WRI’s site locations, individuals will report directly to their internship where they will be met by Community PreVoc staff. Staff will support individuals while they are onsite and continue to give them valuable feedback about their performance. Individuals will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the internship, similar to how they were responsible for getting themselves to WRI/volunteer sites and home.
