The Community Internship Collaboration (CIC), a new workforce development program for UNM-Los Alamos undergraduate students and Los Alamos High School juniors and seniors, held its second graduation Tuesday, May 10 at UNM-Los Alamos.

 The event was attended by the interns, their mentors, representatives from the supporting organizations, and members of the community. Each intern gave a short presentation on his or her internship experience.

 Students are paid by the program for up to 60 hours throughout the 15-week session. They also attend a series of classes at UNM-LA for which they receive academic credit.

 The Community Internship Collaboration is a joint partnership of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Security, LLC, UNM-Los Alamos, Los Alamos High School (LAHS), and the Small Business Development Center. The collaboration’s objectives are to give students learning opportunities in business settings, while also providing local businesses with interns eager to contribute to the success of their business at no cost to them. The program is made possible by a financial investment from Los Alamos National Security, LLC.
