FAS HR partners with Year Up, a national training program, to offer internships to 18 to 24 year olds from low-income backgrounds.  Learn more about the FAS's partnership with Year Up and check out the application for your department to hire a Year Up intern.

The Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) provides valuable work experiences to high school youth from Boston and Cambridge, while contributing to Harvard’s summer staffing needs.  Participating departments fund the hiring of a student, which full-time for the whole summer term (please check back for summer 2016 dates) is less than $2,500. The hours and dates may be adjusted to fit your needs and budget. For more information contact: james_dunford@harvard.edu or call 617-496-0304.

If you plan to hire an intern, visit HHR portal page for information on hiring a paid Co-op student or intern, and the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) website for instructions and documentation for hiring an unpaid intern or volunteer.
