Internships For Enrolled Seneca Nation Members

The Vision 2020 Seneca Internship Program will provide gainful employment opportunities to serve Seneca students as interns in their selected field of study. Work experience will provide the student with an opportunity to develop, observe, and understand the type of expectations their job requires in a real work environment.

Vision 2020 aspires to employ “Qualified Senecas in all Leadership positions by the year 2020” to ensure continual protection of sovereignty and treaty rights by leaders proficient in Seneca History and values. Future leaders must also be verdant in interdisciplinary subjects that will enrich academic and professional experiences through their high school, college and professional careers.

Interns are expected to work 40 hours a week during the 6 week program. Internships are offered during the summer. Each intern will be required to complete a portfolio to document the events, projects, trainings, and overall learning experience of the Vision 2020 program. This is a drug and alcohol free program and students must comply with SNI Human Resource policies.
