Internship Info

Due to the current COVID-19 national emergency, there have been changes made regarding the United Way of Southwest Virginia’s paid Internship program. Below outlines the major changes.

Application deadline is now extended to May 8, 2020 for students.

All hiring decisions need to be made by May 22nd, 2020 by the employers.

An intern cannot start until June 11th on site unless the stay at home order has been released before then. Then they can start as early as June 1st.

The commitment form is the ONLY form now that needs to be turned in. This can be done electronically if you are not able print from home in order to sign. That means you can type in the form and provide contact information along with your printed name; however, if you are unable to type on the form. Please just send an email to me giving your child permission to participate in the internship program.

Have your child login to MajorClarity at to apply for an internship today!

If you have any further questions about the Ignite program or the internship application process, please feel free to reach out to me.
