No. There is no monetary cost associated with participation, as DOES pays the interns.
Interns who are selected for a CFI are paid at the
DCPS students age 15 – 21 who are currently receiving, or have completed, employability skills training at their school. All CFI applicants must receive a recommendation from their employability skills instructor.
The DCPS CFI Program is a unique collaboration between DCPS and DOES to provide select students with high level internship placements at host employers that align with our students’ career aspirations.
