LCJVS Summer Interns Earn Over $293,000

Mihai Murat (Elyria), worked at Elyria City School District this summer

As part of the 2021 Lorain County JVS Summer Internship Program, 84 students successfully completed the program earning over $293,000.  A total of 75 local companies employed interns, providing mentoring and opportunities for students to practice the technical skills they learned at the JVS.  
 
Annette McIver, Lorain County JVS career services specialist, shared that this school year and last she received more emails and phone calls from businesses that were hiring than ever before. “Due to the labor shortage, local businesses were more eager than ever to have skilled student interns this summer.” 
 
According to McIver, the labor shortage has also driven up starting wages and increased the number of hours students were offered by businesses.
 
“Businesses benefited by having skilled workers and students benefited by gaining valuable work experience and earning good wages,” shared McIver.
 
The industrial electricity program had 11 total interns working at numerous local companies. The demand is high for skilled trades and the Lorain County JVS is helping to fill that need.
 
Kylee Gill, Landscape and Greenhouse Management senior from Keystone, worked at Pandy's Garden Center in Elyria. “I am really happy I was accepted into the LCJVS Summer Internship Program. I enjoyed helping clients find the right plants for their landscapes. I found that at times it can be a challenge, since you have to take in to consideration lighting requirements, size restraints, and customer taste, but it was rewarding at the same time.” 
 
Another field that didn’t slow down for JVS students was manufacturing. Twelve students from four different Lorain County JVS programs were a part of the summer internship program. 
 
“Many students who completed the summer internship program are continuing to work during the school year,” McIver said.  “It benefits the entire workforce system for students to have ongoing work experiences that align with what they’re learning in their LCJVS program.”
 
The Summer Internship Program is an opportunity available to junior students who have successfully completed their first year of career-technical training, and who have superior attendance and strong teacher recommendations. This experience extends student learning beyond the classroom and provides students with real world work experience. Students can interact with company mentors and develop a direct pathway to additional education, training, or future employment.
