The Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR) Vermont Intern Program provides internship opportunities with local businesses and organizations to students at Vermont colleges and universities. We give students the opportunity to explore career opportunities in Vermont, and also support the fast-growing entrepreneurial economy in Vermont. Interns have the opportunity to gain hands on, real-world experience in a business. Businesses benefit from the work, energy and insight of a student. Not only is it a mutually beneficial situation for the business and the student, but the state of Vermont benefits from the retention of talented people in the labor force with the goal that students will continue to live and work in Vermont after graduating. VBSR’s internship program works to contribute to Vermont’s economic development, while introducing students to the opportunities that exist here in Vermont.
