Career Exploration Internship Program at North, South Colonie Schools

The Colonie Chamber of Commerce will be discussing the Career Exploration Internship Program (CEIP) offered at both North and South Colonie School Districts on Wednesday, Jan. 23, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Berkshire Bank, 151 Vly Road in Niskayuna.

CEIP is an opportunity for high school students to explore career options and make potential life-long connections with professionals in the Colonie Community through unpaid career internships. With zero liability to your business, CEIP encourages a school-to-community partnership to help students better understand the relationship between school and work.

Joining the conversation will be South Colonie CEIP Coordinator Chris Hanley and Guidance Counselor Kristen Mesick, and North Colonie faculty member Rich Heim. Also present will be students, parents and businesses that have participated in CEIP.

The event is free to members and non-members. Breakfast will be provided by Panera Bread Catering.
