CRF’s Expanding Horizons Internships (EHI) combine paid internships in exciting professional settings with 20 interactive seminars. The program starts in the spring and concludes in the summer with the paid summer internship. EHI provides professional skill-building, community awareness, and educational and college preparation seminars necessary for effective action in our democratic society. EHI places qualified urban students from the Los Angeles area as paid interns in law firms, businesses, government offices, and non-profit organizations.

To be accepted into the program, students must (1) complete a written application, (2) submit a transcript and two letters of recommendation, (3) provide proof of participation in the Free/Reduced Meals Program, (4) write an essay, and (5) pass two rounds of interviews.

This program is only offered for 11th grade students, but we do have an alternate position available for 10th grade students. As an EHI alternate the student is given an exclusive opportunity to participate in all of EHI’s educational seminars and be eligible to get a paid summer internship if one becomes available.  As an alternate a paid summer internship is not guaranteed.

The deadline to turn in the application for CRF’s Expanding Horizons Internships is February 7, 2014.
