Henry L. "Hank" Lacayo Institute Internship Program (HLI)

The Henry L. "Hank" Lacayo Institute for Workforce & Community Studies (HLI) invites Ventura County employers to become a partner with the HLI Internship Program. The goal is to provide CI students with a paid hands-on experience in an occupational setting related to their field of interest and/or major while providing local employers with talent-in-training. The institute provides funding to support the internship program at CI. Employer contributions and community help to underwrite the stipends offered to student interns. Both students and employers benefit from this educational exchange.

The HLI Internship Program at CI provides a connecting bridge from academia to industry in order to prepare the future workforce to meet 21st century workforce needs. With the partnership of private industry and public education it is possible to reduce the skills gap to develop jobs and ensure that workers are well-prepared for today’s changing employment market.
