FOR PARENTS

Dear parents, thank you for helping your teen navigate how to apply for their first internship! It is important for you to coach your teen, not do for your teen what they can do for themselves. 


In an effort to create a "real world" experience, Urgent, Inc. will not respond to your inquiries. Your teen must call on their own behalf if they need more information. Yes! Please help them prepare their questions. In addition, your teen applicant must use their own email to apply for a position on-line AND when sending any questions. 


For youth who are offered a position, Urgent will hold a parent orientation to share with you about the summer internship process, expectations and calendar of activities. Once again, we are excited to be on this journey with you as you help your teen access summer employment. Remember, if your teen was applying to Target, McDonald's, or other retail shop, they would not entertain your inquiries. We also will only communicate with the applicant.
