The Explore Program connects students with cultural, college, and career interests outside of the classroom. Whether through internships with Marist alumni, programs at local universities, volunteer experiences, or job experiences, Marist students gain authentic, hands-on experiences.
Check out past placements and participants below in addition to other local programs that might be of interest to Marist students!
Many of these programs have applications that open in January or February. While some are paid positions, other are volunteer positions or cost money to attend. See what might be a fit for you!
