The Louis Stokes Workforce Readiness Internship Program kicks off its second year on Monday, June 19, 2017. The program gives rising high school sophomores from Cleveland and East Cleveland the opportunity to learn alongside Cleveland Clinic caregivers.

Launched in partnership with PNC Bank and supported by Youth Opportunities Unlimited and Effective Leadership Academy, this six-week internship program encourages students' interest in non-clinical areas of health care like law, administration information technology, marketing, human resources, and building operations.

During the program, Stokes Scholars participate in field trips, independent and group research projects, workshops and presentations, and work with their assigned mentor and Cleveland Clinic caregivers to learn about non-clinical careers in health care.

The 2017 Louis Stokes Workforce Readiness Internship Program includes 67 rising high school sophomores from Cleveland or East Cleveland schools.
