Career Development


Explore careers of interest and pathways to those careers, network with local educators and professionals, build job readiness skills, and connect with peers from around Dane County! Some of the activities include creating a vision board, completing an informational interview with a professional, weekly field trips, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to earn $500 for program completion. MMSD students will also have the opportunity to earn school credit via the Employability Skills Certificate program.

Summer Internships!

Every summer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County will continue to prioritize meaningful career development opportunities for our members. If you or your organization might be interested in supporting opportunities for our members, please read more below!

Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County will offer multiple paid, career development opportunities for youth and young adults in Madison. Some programs will be for BGCDC members only, while others will be open to all youth in the community, who will then be enrolled as a member upon acceptance (at no cost).

For Employers:

We need your support to make this summer a success! Individuals and organizations in Dane County can support in the following ways:

  • Host an intern: We work with a variety of organizations in Dane County to place highly qualified interns in paid positions. Our minimum internship period is 6 weeks, though we have some interns work as many as 12 weeks. Applications are due no later than March 31st, 2023. Learn more below!


  • Sponsor an internship: Unpaid internship experiences perpetuate inequality, and create barriers for access to opportunities. We pay all of our interns a minimum of $15/hour, and the support of our donors helps to maximize the number of students we can connect to these opportunities
