Small Town Feel With A Heart As Big As Texas

INTERNSHIPS

CHAMBER CONNECT SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

The Summer Internship Program will allow employees the valuable work experiences they need to become successful in the future workforce in Lamar County.

The program will also be unique in the way that we will seek out employment for interns with disabilities. We believe there is a place in our community for all that want to work but may not have had the opportunity to learn what it takes.

The Lamar County Chamber of Commerce is currently looking for responses of commitment or interest.

Participating partners will be promoted by the Chamber of Commerce at every opportunity we get and we are very excited to be partnering with Paris Junior College and Texas A & M Commerce- School of Social Work in this new project.

If you have any questions regarding the Summer Internship Program, please contact Paul Allen at 903-784-2501.
