From the community to the future workforce

The TFS “Making Life Easier” (MLE) Summer Work Intern Program offers paid summer internships for students who have received financial need scholarships and are affiliated with some of our nonprofit partners.  It’s a unique opportunity for interns to obtain meaningful work experience and acquire the skills necessary to succeed, while gaining valuable insights into their long-term career goals. During the 8-10 week paid internship program each intern has a dedicated mentor to provide them guidance and resources, plus a manager to provide feedback on professional development.

Through the program, TFS has successfully transitioned many interns into full time employees, proving that TFS truly supports local youth from childhood to their early professional careers. Inia Franklin, a previous MLE intern and now TFS team member, had this to say:

“Not only did the program set me up for a successful senior year, but also the opportunity to put into practice what I learned throughout the internship experience when hired as a full time employee. From mentorship to networking, the MLE program provides you with the tools, interpersonal skills and talent development needed to trail blaze not only a successful career, but a rewarding and enjoyable life. As I continue to grow, I know the success is not of my own, but the village and community created among my MLE family here at TFS. Thank you MLE!”
