Myinternshipgopher.com is a new mentoring resource for students in the Philadelphia region. The site is a result of a collaboration between the Chester County Economic Development Council, ITAG (Innovation Technology Action Group), Chester County Workforce Investment Board and Chester County Health Care Partnership.

The goal of MyInternshipGopher.com is to provide a resource to help young adults prepare for internships and transition into a 21st century workforce and meet the needs of the regional economy.

The schools selected to participate in the project beta are Downingtown, Great Valley, Owen J. Roberts, Phoenixville, West Chester, and West Chester University.
