Pay It Forward
It is typical for college students to acquire an internship to delve further into an area of study, but Poly is anything but typical. Now in it's third year, Poly's Pay It Forward program provides students with internships in STEM, business, and the art related fields. Through this program, 18 Poly students completed internships this summer at notable companies such as: BG&E, Whiting Turner, CMR Engineering, EN Engineering and the Baltimore City Health Department. Pay It Forward's Director Jarren Williams explains, "Pay It Forward is not about just providing students with internships, it's about providing confidence in their ability to apply their academic background to a workforce that desires their value."

If you would like to become involved with the Pay It Forward internship program by becoming a mentor or providing internships, please contact us at payitforward@bpi.edu.
