The Sarasota Chamber’s Opportunities For All Celebrates 25 Graduating Interns from the 2022 Summer Internship Program

Business

The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce’s Opportunities For All (OFA) was proud to celebrate the 2022 OFA Summer Internship program on Tuesday, August 2, 2022. This was the second year of OFA’s Summer Internship program, and the program continues to grow. Twenty-five interns were successfully connected to 18 Chamber members and local employers.
These 18 local employers gave a lifetime opportunity to our community's rising future leaders through OFA’s ten-week program. This program provides a win-win opportunity for local employers to have a diverse intern for the summer. Providing our bright, talented, leaders with this opportunity to broaden their exposure to the professional work world not only benefits employers, but it also contributes to the overall growth of the community and economy. Moreover, 85% of the interns were minorities. So far, four local employers have offered positions to their interns for continued employment.The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce fully funded this experience through the Opportunities For All grant provided by the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. For more information or to learn more about the Opportunities For All program, please reach out to Kaveecia Moore, Opportunities For All Manager, at kmoore@sarasotachamber.com.
