Hoosier Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics (AML) companies now have access to high school summer interns for little to no cost. With the support of our grant funders and community partners, Conexus Indiana has developed a student work-and-learn experience, where companies get a glimpse of potential full-time employees. The program was piloted in central and west central Indiana last year in summer 2015 and launched statewide in 2016. The key aspects of the internship program are:

  • 6-week summer high school internship
  • Funding for 100% of intern compensation in first year; 50% second year; employer paid thereafter
  • Industry driven program development
  • Focus on converting students into employees or post-secondary students in AML fields
  • Intern cohort meeting to coach students on careers and create a sense of community

Internships take place in June and July and generally last 6 weeks. Interns are immersed in a manufacturing or logistics environment where they serve as employees of a local AML company. Students learn the ins and outs of AML operations including manufacturing processes, quality tools, inventory management, and much more. In addition, each cohort of interns attends two Conexus Interns Summits to make connections, take part in leadership and problem-solving activities, and prepare for opportunities after high school.

To ensure quality experiences for students, companies must apply to serve as host sites. High school students must complete an internship application as well as meet a list of criteria, making sure that the most promising students are placed.
