Summer Internship Program

Fleet Feet's paid summer internship program is focused on recruitment of underrepresented groups with the goal of overcoming perceived barriers of participation related to location, transportation, or awareness. Our 9-week rotational internship will provide professional development, mentorship, networking, skills development, and on-the-job training in two areas of the intern's choosing at Store Support Team (Corporate office) and Retail Stores. Applications will be available in the Fall on Fleet Feet's Careers page.
