MiddCOREplus is a summer-long program that combines project-based internships with weekly skill-building workshops. Open to Middlebury students who have completed the four-week MiddCORE Immersion program, MiddCOREplus provides an opportunity to apply CORE strengths to a challenge currently faced by a partner business or organization.
The Importance of Mentors
We carefully select internship sponsors for their willingness and ability to work collaboratively with our students. Projects are designed to provide value and meaning to both the partner organization and the student.
MiddCOREplus students spend 30 hours per week at their respective organizations. They return to campus on Fridays for skill-building workshops designed to build CORE strengths. Friday afternoons often end with activities designed to strengthen the MiddCORE community and cultivate creative brainstorming. Field trips to local and regional hubs of innovation round out the experience.
Internship opportunities for 2013 are now available MCPlusProposals2013.
