Ohio Career Exploration Internship Program Kick-off

State Representative Nan Baker (R-Westlake) joined the Ohio Development Services Agency in August to announce the start of the second round of the Ohio Career Exploration Internship Program. 

The program provides grants to certain businesses for employing high school students, which in turn help participating high school students gain valuable on-the-job experience in a field that interests them. It was created last year through House Bill 107, which Rep. Baker sponsored.

“I'm so pleased that our Career Exploration Internship bill, designed to raise the awareness of all the different career opportunities for our high school students to explore, is now put into action across the state of Ohio,” said Baker. “From accountants to architects to entrepreneurs to learning skills to work in the trades, this bill offers a variety of choices putting our businesses and students together.” 

Questions can be addressed to Edward King, Ohio Career Exploration Internship Program Manager, at Edward.King@development.ohio.gov or (614) 644-6546.
