The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce acts as a facilitator for those wishing to employ young people or to host youth interns.
We work with several community-based youth service providers to help young people find employment and internship opportunities.The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce provides a Certificate of Completion to those who have successfully completed one of our partner agencies' employment readiness programs. This certificate attests that the person named has completed an approved work readiness program, understands the expectations of employers and knows workplace ettiquette, appropriate dress and decorum for the workplace and has basic skills necessary to be effective in the workplace.

Hosting an intern is rewarding for all involved. Students gain valuable, real world experience and learn about careers and the world of work. Host companies gain an energetic, eager student worker who can bring new and valuable insights to your business and be a great temporary addition to your workforce.
