Learn How to Launch an Industry-Led Internship Program in Your Community

With the support of the Oregon Talent Council and in partnership with the Regional Solutions Coordinators, the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership (MEDP) will deliver four (4) workshops designed to inspire more community internship opportunities in Oregon. Our goal is to have the sessions take place in four separate regions.

All workshops must be completed by June 16, 2017.

There is no charge for the training.
The workshops are 6-hours and are designed for up to 20 participants.

Who Organizes What?

MEDP: MEDP will coordinate with community host organizations to deliver the workshops by June 2017. MEDP will provide session marketing templates, pre- and post- online coaching sessions, 6-hour trainings, program materials, training worksheets, customizable program elements, internship magazines, and loaded thumb drives.

Regional Solutions Coordinator: Regional Solutions Coordinators will identify communities they believe would benefit from an Oregon | WORKS Community Internship Workshop. After identifying a community the Regional Solutions Coordinator will find a point of contact for the community and have them complete an online participation form. Participation forms must be completed by April 21, 2017. Click here to see the Regional Solutions Coordinator for your region.

Community Host Organization (YOU): You would be responsible for “filling the room” with up to 20 participants. The host will handle all the logistics associated with the day of the workshop. The community host will identify one point of contact for MEDP. The host will coordinate location arrangements including attendee registrations, meals, beverages, AV support, and onsite logistics. The host will cover all day of expenses. The host may choose to charge a fee to cover the event costs.

What Happens Next? 

MEDP will contact Community Host Organization within a week of receiving their online participation forms. The dates of the Oregon | WORKS Community Internship Workshops will be confirmed by May 5, 2017. 

MEDP will contact the community point of contacts for the pre-session call in the month of May.
