Local High School Interns Gain Experience At Columbia
On Friday, August 9th, nearly 30 Columbia University employees joined 15 interns at the closing celebration of the 2013 Columbia University Manhattanville High School Summer Internship Program. The teenagers gave presentations highlighting key skills learned from their summer experience. More than 150 youth applied for the five-week paid summer internship.
