OWN High School Summer Internship

OWN believes exploration is the first step to discovering a passion. What excites you? What gives you life? It’s difficult to know what you really want to pursue in life until you try.

Our OWN High School Summer Internship program achieves this aim by providing the experiences that cultivate and sparks passion.

This program runs in two formats. Held in the summer, for selected candidates, students are placed into meaningful and relevant roles as interns, guided and vetted by OWN Academy. Our other option allows for additional preparation for an intern role, receiving guidance by OWN staff to dissect and disseminate a real-world business brief. Both formats are grounded in real-world learning to provide an unique and comprehensive learning experience.
