The Summer Career Acceleration Program prepares students for the workforce, providing a paid summer internship and an industry certification.


Interns will be paid through a grant, so there will be no cost to employers. Interested businesses can learn more at the Summer Career Acceleration Program Kickoff, 2-3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Stavros Institute's Achieva Conference Room in Largo. Sign up to attend the kickoff event.
