The Internship Program was developed to teach transferable employment skills, refresh existing skills and reinforce soft skills (dependability, communication and working with others). This is a non-paid learning program where participants are assigned to a job with a regular schedule at Carpenter’s Place. The work done may be included on a resume and CP staff may be used as a reference. Participants work at least 12 hours a week and are evaluated regularly. Participants may also find internships outside of Carpenter’s Place if they serve the same guidelines and accountability.
