Internships

The GardHouse Way
How we recruit

01. Community Partners

GardHouse serves as a pipeline for students enrolled with one of our several community partners. We ensure that these students receive opportunities to advance their professional careers.

Paid Internships

03. Workforce Development

GardHouse connects admitted students to internships within corporate partners, minority-owned businesses, and minority-led organizations for a semester or entire academic year.  Students receive a stipend of $2,500 for completing 15-hours per week each semester.

Open application

02. External Students

For students not enrolled in one of our community partner organizations, we suggest that you submit the following to be considered for an upcoming cohort:

  • Unofficial transcript
  • Resume
  • Video Statement: Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve through your chosen career path. Think of anything
    that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and
    what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution. (Five-minutes max)

*Decisions for upcoming cohorts are made on the last Friday each April.

Supplemental Learning

04. Programming

While enrolled in an internship, GardHouse offers several workshops throughout the semester to enhance your overall experience. From student networking to resume editing, we provide students with additional tools to elevate their employment prospects post-graduation.
