The Tourism Cares Internship Program serves as a connection epicenter; matching tourism and hospitality employers with students looking for internship positions within these industries. We facilitate this process by utilizing our extensive database of students, educators and industry relationships already in place from our scholarship and mentoring programs to maintain a current stream of interested candidates.
