Getting students to and through college.

Summer Interns

Higher Edge, Inc. is seeking Summer paid internships
for our Success Program college students!

We begin working with students admitted into our College Access Program their senior year of high school. Our Success Program college students are pursuing degrees in a variety of fields, are succeeding academically and many have taken on leadership roles at their respective colleges. What better way to support and encourage these students to return to our Eastern Connecticut workforce after graduation than to give them an opportunity to gain skills from a local business while meeting your need for a summer intern?

Higher Edge will connect you with interested students for your business’ open summer positions. If you are ready now to meet prospective summer intern candidates and/or would like to provide information to students about your company, contact us today!

Thank you for considering Higher Edge students in your efforts to recruit outstanding summer interns for your organization.

If you have any questions, contact us:

“My college experience has honestly been a huge roller-coaster ride. From having to overcome the academic struggles of transitioning from a public high school into a private university and, so much more. I have grown in ways that I never would have imagined. I have also accomplished many things that were not even a thought years ago, such as earning a paid-internship with a start-up company in Boston. I have learned to keep an open perspective with life. In addition, to never let my temporary obstacles determine the fate of my future. I am proud to say that I will be a Bentley University alumnus in May of 2019. This is only the beginning of my journey, so stay tuned. I want my life to be a living example that anything is possible and that it is never too late to turn your life around for the better.”

– Naseef McCray, Bentley University ’19

We are incredibly saddened by the violence and senseless racism that has affected black communities for generations. Higher Edge’s mission is aimed at leveling the playing field, of supporting young people in our community who are our country’s future. We believe that Black History should be a requirement – not elective – in every school across the country. And that the time to enact policies to end systemic racism and racial inequalities is now.

We commit to working with community partners to advance racial equity in public education; to listening; to educating; to being anti-racist, and to taking action to do the hard work necessary for lasting, meaningful change.
