Work! As Learning

NHED is working with Awato and local employers to connect secondary students with local, subsidized paid internships.

How it works

  1. An eligible student connects with The Acme Company, a qualified employer, on the
    Awato platform.
  2. The student applies for the approved employment opportunity and is hired at a wage
    of $15/hr, paid by The Acme Company.
  3. The Acme Company is reimbursed up to $7.50/hr, up to 480 hours, through a wage match by the NH Department of Education.
The program is now in its final year so please keep the following dates in mind as you plan for opportunities this summer:
  • May 31, 2024: Final day for new employers to register
  • June 28, 2024: Final day for students to register
  • August 30, 2024: Work! As Learning reimbursement program ends
  • September 3, 2024: All final pay stubs must be submitted by employers
