Learn and Earn Program

Launched with the support of the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership in spring 2012, Learn and Earn provides paid internships in a corporate immersion experience.  As of spring 2016, 436 BHCC students across 36 academic programs have participated.   Since fall 2014, Learn and Earn 2.0 has doubled its reach to serve over 100 students per semester working 16 to 40 hours per week, supported by 17 company partners. 208 students (50%) have had extended internships and 53 students (13%) have landed jobs.  Transformative student success is consistently reported in boosted confidence, self-growth, network connections and career readiness. In May 2015 the Learn and Earn Program, in partnership with the program’s founding sponsor, Massachusetts Competitive Partnership (MACP), received a national Award of Excellence in the Outstanding College/Corporate Partnership category from the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). A committee of the AACC Board of Directors cited the innovative program for its exceptional work in advancing student success.
