Reimagining Summer Internships During COVID

Reimagining Summer Internships During COVID

By Peg McCool Posted: April 29, 2020

Summer jobs are about more than the paycheck. For the students we serve at the Philadelphia Education Fund, a summer job is the opportunity to learn about workplace culture, build authentic relationships with a caring adult, and to acquire new skills.

Despite the pandemic, it’s important that we remain committed to providing students with this opportunity to grow and develop. So, at PEF, we are recruiting worksites and inviting 50 rising high school seniors from our Gear Up program to join us for PEF’s Summer WorkReady.

While we know it’s difficult to plan when there is so much uncertainty, our students deserve our best efforts. Are you willing to help with a virtual or socially-distanced work experience? Email Brandi Ashley at or register here.
