Students are employed full time (M-F, 8-5) by a prominent Boston area organization for 7 weeks from late June to mid August. Tasks will vary, but work will be real, not menial. Students will be supervised by a professional at the host organization, as well as the DLI Director.
Students will participate in professional development opportunities weekly by attending a "site visit" or field trip to each of the host organizations. Led by the DLI Director, 2-3 organizations will be visited one day per week, usually Wednesdays. Visits include a tour of the organization, presentations by managers/executive leaders, and advice about college and the professional world. Reflections papers will supplement the learning.
