The University of Maine Cooperative Extension proudly partners with Maine Career Catalyst to offer an engaging experience for our participants. Maine Career Catalyst provides professional development, social opportunities, and networking for college students working in summer internship programs throughout the state. This program is not limited to The University of Maine Cooperative Extension — in 2019, more than 800 students participated! From stand-up paddleboarding and eating lobster rolls along Maine’s coast to lunch and learn workshops that teach you professional development skills, these events held throughout the summer facilitate connections among interns and a deeper understanding of opportunities to launch a career in Maine.
