Invest in your company's future by hiring a DC CAN intern!

A partnership between education and business is key to closing the skills gap and improving how we prepare and train individuals for work. The DC Career Academy Network (DC CAN) is looking for paid internship opportunities for selected high school students. DC CAN is an affiliate of NAF, which has a 30-year history of developing successful students.

Our academies take the form of small learning communities within larger schools and are organized around one of four career themes – Engineering, Health Sciences, Hospitality & Tourism, or Information Technology. DC CAN students have specialized experience in their career pathways which uniquely qualifies them for top-tier internship opportunities.

DC CAN interns are required to complete an employability skills curriculum that focuses on poise, initiative, and tenacity. Paid internships during the summer months may be supplemented by funds from the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program.
