Summer Internships

For the sixth consecutive summer, Hope Life Skills students have interned at one of the world’s largest companies,

CVS Health, a $180 billion dollar company located in Woonsocket,

Rhode Island. The summer of 2018 was no different for

Eveline Silva and Rosa Rodriguez.

From constructing Excel spread sheets to contacting remote CVS stores about product deliveries, these Hope students became part of the CVS Health Corporate team.

during their summer internship at the company’s corporate campus.  “They really became part of our team, attending meetings and collaborating with team members to find solutions to system challenges.  They both made meaningful contributions to CVS”  Edwin stated.  “Furthermore, you’ll be happy to know they represented Hope High, the Life Skills program, and their families extremely well. 

Hope High continues to be a strong brand at CVS Health.
