Our Mission

To connect the learning needs of youth to the talent demands of industry resulting in a more inclusive and vibrant local economy by equipping young people with job-ready skills.

Our Program

A nine-week paid internship for graduated seniors, pairing employers with prospective talent, providing meaningful work experience for youth while filling a labor gap faced by industry. This coupled with weekly professional development workshops and mentorship provided by community volunteers establishes the three pillars on which success is built.

Grow Our Own

The Malheur Works program is a Grow Our Own initiative. The economic vitality of any community depends on a sustainable talent pipeline and a new generation of young people who choose to put down roots in the community. This program supports our economic landscape by helping to retain and grow talent starting from within our own educational institutions. 

What is a Student Internship Program?

An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. 

Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
