    Overview

    The Education Cooperative (TEC) Internship Program is a selective career exploration placement program supporting junior and senior high school students and college students in the Boston Metrowest area. For over 15 years we have developed outstanding relationships with highly sought after businesses, organizations and public sector employers, who serve as mentors for our internship students.

    Participating in an internship is one of the best ways for students in high school and college to try on a career and gain work experience. An internship can either confirm a career interest or lead a student in a new direction.

    Through TEC's internship program, students will benefit by...

    • Clarifying career goals and future academics
    • Understanding what having a job is really like
    • Strengthening a college application and/or resume
    • Gaining confidence and life skills
    • Making potential contacts for a future job search

    Internships are what you make of them. It’s not a Job, It’s an Education.

    TEC offers internships in traditional careers such as Finance, Engineering, Journalism, Marketing, etc. as well as other less-explored careers.
