Minority Interns

Nationwide ( – Summer is near, and many students are anticipating their summer jobs or summer internships. Many, however, are procrastinating and have not yet applied for the many opportunities that are available. Each year, minority students especially seem to be waiting to the last minute to apply.

Last summer for example, the Black teen unemployment rate was at an alarmingly high rate, and this added to the already devastating statistics of Black unemployment. With all that being said, it is not too late and there are many programs that are still accepting applications – not just for the summer, but also for the upcoming fall and winter.
