PRIDE Industries operates an Employment Services Internship Program, which provides a path for people with disabilities – including veterans and at-risk youth – to get their foot in the door or start a new career.

PRIDE’s internship program offers up to 250 hours of paid work experience within PRIDE or with a community employer partner. Our internships are available for individuals with disabilities with a referral from the CA Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.

Through the internship, individuals get hands-on experience and gain essential skills while working in a safe, supportive environment. For people with little to no work experience, it provides a good resume builder and an opportunity to develop confidence in their abilities.
