The West Ambassador Internship Program is a well-established summer intern program that traditionally runs for ten weeks from the end of May to the beginning of August. Interns are key contributors to our company and this fully paid internship program is instrumental in shaping future careers.  We value the insight and fresh perspective our interns bring to the table. Each year, the goal of the program is to give real-world practical experience to college students that are near entry level employment, to give them an opportunity to work alongside industry experts. We work by the side of our interns to ensure they have the opportunity to learn, discover and apply new found knowledge within their fields.

This summer, the 2019 intern class consisted of 24 interns across the US, 16 of them residing at the global headquarters in Exton, Pennsylvania. The remaining eight interns were stationed at other West US locations in the offices of Tempe, Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona, as well as Kinston, North Carolina and Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania.

Recently, interns of West’s global headquarters in Exton, Pennsylvania, hosted a Final Showcase Event where they highlighted various elements of their overall internship experience. The showcase, which included each intern creating a poster to highlight and present their experience, served as a final opportunity for the interns to continue to network with other members of the West team as they finished the ninth week of the ten-week West Ambassador Internship Program.

Recently, West Interns from the Exton headquarters volunteered at the Thorncroft Equestrian Center in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Established in 1969, Thorncroft is a Therapeutic Equestrian Center that provides horseback riding to children and adults with mental, emotional and physical disabilities, with the mission to develop the physical and emotional well-being of all people, regardless of their individual challenges. As volunteers, the interns participated in various maintenance activities around the farm to help preserve and support the valuable experience that Thorncroft continually provides to our community.
