WPSI | Summer Internships

In six short weeks, 50 high school students will enter the West Philadelphia workforce as UCD Summer Interns. This year UCD has expanded its Professional Internship Program (geared for 11th- and 12th-graders) from 25 to 50 slots, doubling our capacity to positively impact the lives of bright, motivated students seeking challenging and rewarding summer jobs. From July 1-August 9, our interns will hone their professional skills and gain the critical on-the-job experience that will help them succeed both in college and throughout their careers. UCD thanks our employer partners who are hosting interns this year: Drexel University; Mercy Philadelphia Hospital; Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; ACHIEVEability; Common Ground Realtors, LLC; Unique Advantage; University Laboratory Animal Resources; Career Wardrobe; Allied Barton; UC Green; and International House Philadelphia.
