A newly-launched internship programme has announced its first cohort of young participants and the host businesses they are working for.

SkillCraft Youth Internship launched is pilot programme this week, which has matched ten young interns with ten businesses.

Margot Shane, programme director, said: “We were thrilled to see the excitement around this internship and delighted to meet incredibly engaged young people and business leaders. It was very challenging for us to choose just ten youth and ten businesses and we’re thankful to all who applied to the programme.”

The successful applicants will spend six weeks creating marketing and social-media plans and content for their host businesses.

Each week, Rise Marketing will facilitate marketing training sessions at the Bermuda Clarity Institute Learning Lab. The interns will practise what they learn within the diverse local businesses participating.
