Pratt Northam Foundation Accepting Applications for 2021 Summer Workership Program

For the 40th consecutive year, the Pratt Northam Foundation invites not-for-
profits delivering services to people living between Boonville and Carthage, to apply for Workership Grants.

The Workership Program will provide a maximum 350 hours of summer
employment for each position at minimum wage, for students who are currently enrolled, or who have been accepted and will be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate academic program at an accredited college for the fall semester, 2021.

The Pratt Northam Foundation encourages all applicants to provide quality experiences for their Workership Students. Due to the increase cost of minimum wage, available funding cannot cover as many sites, increasing competition for this very popular program. The Foundation values the sites that gives students true hands on learning experiences.

Workership applicants are reminded that Workership sites are selected based upon
the affirmative answers to the following questions: 1. Does the Workership
position provide programming directly to young people? 2. Does the
Workership position indirectly benefit young people? 3. Does the Workership
position help the student build skills and experience on a specific career tract?
4. Does the Workership positon relate to the student’s field of study? 5. Will the student receive internship or academic credit for the summer work?

An application for Workership funding can be downloaded from the Foundation’s
Website: prattnortham.org. The deadline for applications is January 8,2021

Private sector businesses and Government Agencies interested in hosting a summer intern are encouraged to contact Lisa Hetzner, Careers Here Coordinator at (315) 376-5295 or Lisa.Hetzner@dfa.state.ny.us to learn more about our Careers Here Program
