COWIC's S.O.A.R. hire! Internship Program is a unique youth-driven program where participants explore various career options and learn what they must do to prepare themselves academically. Job placements during the summer as well as throughout the year provide valuable learning experiences.
Thanks to COWIC's public-private partnership with the City of Columbus, local academic institutions, area businesses and community-based organizations that serve youth, the S.O.A.R. hire! Internship Program can reconnect area youth, provide young people with valuable work experience and help local businesses access a pool of qualified seasonal employees.
COWIC's Youth Service Department is governed by a Youth Council whose mission is to empower youth to develop life-long learning, earning, and serving skills, utlilizing inter-generational support, community service and partnerships. The Youth Council supports all Central Ohio youth in becoming the person they aspire to be through coordination of resources, workforce opportunities and nurturing communities.
