Urban Alliance was invited to bring our signature High School Internship Program to Northern Virginia youth in 2013. Since then, we’ve partnered with 77 Northern Virginia employers to connect over 400 high school seniors to paid, professional internships, mentors, workplace readiness training, and post-high school planning assistance. Currently, we serve students from 12 public high schools across Alexandria City, Arlington County, Fairfax County, and Falls Church City.
In 2016, Urban Alliance Northern Virginia partnered with Fairfax County Public Schools to bring year-long workforce readiness training to high school juniors through the High School Internship Preparatory Program. To-date, we’ve served over 120 juniors from Justice High School and Falls Church High School, many of whom continued on to our senior-year High School Internship Program.
In addition to our senior-year High School Internship Program and junior-year High School Internship Preparatory Program, we’ve provided career-readiness training to 900 high school students through community workshops.
