Mastbaum Public High School Summer Internship Program

For the first time since COVID-19 hit, Elliott-Lewis led the charge as the first employer to return to the summer internship program with the School District of Philadelphia. Elliott-Lewis utilized this as an opportunity to place high school students enrolled in trade programs in groups of skilled professionals resulting in no less than a 3:1 ratio of Elliott-Lewis employees to each student.
