Can I Get College Internship Credit?
Yes! If you have an applicable field of study and would like to make your summer position into an internship, contact us once you apply and we can discuss the possibility of an internship.
Do I Get Time Off?
Yes, absolutely! Each week you will be off from Friday evening to Sunday early afternoon. In addition, you will have the option of taking an entire week off. However, this week off will be unpaid.
Do I Have To Pay For Housing And Food?
