Explore Charleston’s Intern Program Launches to Connect Students From HBCUs to Charleston’s Hospitality Industry

This summer Explore Charleston launched an internship program in Charleston to connect students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with internships in the tourism sector. 

The interns completed a robust 10-week inaugural program that provided paid opportunities at various hotels, resorts, and in one case an airport. They participated in weekly sessions that included discussions about Charleston’s history and career-focused Q&As with hospitality professionals.
