Please join us for a special event at the Boston Foundation, as we host the release of a new report on paid internships for community college students, and present the Fifth Annual Deval Patrick Prize for Community Colleges to an community college program leading the way in innovation and business partnership.
At a 3 p.m. convening, report authors Richard Kazis and Nancy Snyder will summarize lessons from internship programs in the Commonwealth and elsewhere, as well as insights from community college presidents, business leaders, state policymakers and students, and share design principles, challenges, opportunities and key choices that any successful state policy initiative would need to consider. That will be followed by a discussion of the report and the landscape for community college internships.
Then at 5 p.m., Massachusetts Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta will announce this year's winner of the Deval Patrick Prize for Community Colleges.
