An Employer's Internship Toolbox

This document was assembled as a result of collaboration through the Education Committee of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Strengthening Stark. The ultimate goal of various education initiatives is to connect our regional businesses with our school systems in order to create a talent pipeline that addresses the needs of the County’s businesses. These relation-ships and connections help build and maintain viable businesses and thus elevates our community through a robust workforce and business community.

The purpose of this "toolbox" is to promote and encourage our regions’ businesses to establish their own internship programs with the local universities and high school career tech programs in Stark County to build these relationships.
