Written by EIP Program Director and Coordinator Kim Wisneski

The Aurora Public Schools Executive Internship Program (EIP) would like to thank individuals and businesses that welcomed interns this semester. The program was unable to hold the Sponsor Appreciation Dinner and Ceremony this semester, but would like to congratulate the interns and thank their sponsors.

Executive Internship Program students have been awarded scholarships donated by EIP Advisory Board members and sponsoring organizations. Students Jonathan Loya (pictured left), Christine Miller (top center), and Alicia Barron (top right) each earned a $500 scholarship while Kayleigh Casados (bottom center) and Jasmine Cole (bottom right) each earned a $1,000 scholarship. Many students also earned President’s Volunteer Service Awards. Bronze awards for 100 hours of community service were awarded to Kyah Caley, Trinity Taiwo, and Kadriana Wallace. Several silver and gold awards were also awarded to students who volunteered 175 and 250 hours respectively.

The EIP boasts partnerships with top notch businesses, hospitals, schools, city services, police, veterinary services and many more. Over the course of a semester, interns volunteer approximately 100 hours with their sponsors and attend an additional 60 hours of instructional time in the classroom to learn workplace skills. Sponsors provide students with real-world experiences and opportunities to “test drive” career fields before committing time and money toward post-secondary preparation.

The program has great sponsors and is always looking for more!
