OEA/MCCC TRIO Upward Bound Program Internship

The Upward Bound Program Internship is a condensed version of our Agrihood internship, run in partnership with the Upward Bound Program at Mercer County Community College.

Similarly to our regular 10-12-week spring internships, this program runs over just 5 weeks long and consists of 4 ZOOM sessions, 1 orientation session, and 2 field trips.

Upward Bound was a great candidate for this smaller internship because it was already structured and we were able to nicely blend into the MCCC’s mission and curriculum. The interns from Upward Bound are motivated and committed to learning and generates significant ongoing interest our upcoming Spring Agrihood Internships.
