The Clatsop WORKS Program provides local students, ages 16 and up, with professional, paid internships in Clatsop County, with the goals of community building, economic development, promoting local career opportunities and retaining local talent.
History of the Program
The Clatsop WORKS Internship Program is modeled after the highly successful McMinnville WORKS internship program, which started in 2008. The Clatsop WORKS Internship Program pilot launched in April 2018. Since then, the program has doubled in host-sites, interns, and jobs offered at the end of the internship program.

What our Interns Say
“A wonderful program! They offered resume workshops, mock interviews, and were involved throughout the whole interview process. Even during the actual internship I could turn to any of the CW staff members and ask questions, or get advice. I really do feel like this whole process has set me up for a lot of great work.”
