About the program
The Forty-hour Internship Tryout (FIT) program is designed to provide every high school student prior to graduation the opportunity to experience a non-paid 40-hour internship experience before they purse a technical, associate or bachelor education. Pettis County is a Certified Work Ready Community (CWRC), so it is an ideal area for a first-of-its-kind prototype to be implemented.
