Do you know your interests, but you're not sure how to make them into a career in Tourism & Hospitality? Apply for an internship with us, and we'll help you get through the guesswork, leaving you free to try a career and see if it's right for you!

The Maine Tourism Association is working with schools across Maine to give all high schoolers aged 16+ the opportunity to intern with Tourism and Hospitality businesses that fit their interests. By taking part in the Maine Career Exploration Badge internship, you gain 40 hours of hands-on experience in the field, seeing what it's really like to work in the industry and building connections for future opportunities. Upon completing the MCEB requirements, you will receive a $500 academic award AND class credit from your school! 

If you are interested in the Maine Career Exploration Badge internship, please click on and complete the application below, and we will connect with your school's MCEB coordinator. 
The MCEB Internship is completed in partnership with JMG and is available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, aged 16+. Sophomores must complete their internship AFTER April 1st to participate. 
Students are NOT required to be enrolled in JMG to take part in the internship or receive the $500 academic award and class credit.
Further details will come from your MCEB coordinator after application. 
You may only take part in the internship and receive the award & credit once.
