The Charleston Area Alliance lauches Internship Development Program

The Charleston Area Alliance is launching a new initiative to promote internships with area businesses in an effort to retain tomorrow’s leaders in our area.

Area businesses are encouraged to inform the Charleston Area Alliance of internship opportunities, paid or unpaid, that provides our future leaders with “real world” working experience.

Our members tell us that workforce development issues are one of their greatest challenges. The region’s growth depends on increasing our intellectual capital – educated and skilled employees. This Internship Development Program is just one way the Alliance is bringing the education and business sectors together to build a workforce equipped for the needs of today and tomorrow.

Please contact Leanne Stowers at or by calling 340-4253 with information about internship opportunities within your organization.
