Six Steps to Success

Invitation for Internship Host Organisations

The Association of Female Executives of Trinidad and Tobago continues to live its mission of providing developmental opportunities for women. Through our generous sponsor, Digicel Trinidad and Tobago Foundation, our Six Steps to Success Programme was launched on 19th March 2016. The first phase of Six Steps to Success provided twenty-three young women the opportunity to participate in a series of professional development programmes where they were equipped with key knowledge and requisite skills to confidently navigate their way at work.

The second phase of the Six Steps to Success Programme is an internship programme. We are inviting your organisation to partner with us by hosting one or two interns for the July-August vacation period.


We urge you to take advantage of this initiative and support the programme by signing your company to be a host organisation for an intern.

How do Employers benefit from Internships?

  • Interns can act as a relief for staff proceeding on vacation.

  • Freedom for professional staff to pursue more strategic projects

  • Hiring candidates may assist in diversity recruitment efforts

  • Interns bring new perspectives to old problems

  • Interns provides a flexible, cost-effective work force that is not requiring of a long-term employer commitment

  • Proven, cost-effective way to recruit and evaluate potential employees

  • Visibility of your organisation is increased within the respective associations and AFETT

  • Your image in the business community is enhanced as you contribute your expertise to the educational experience to interns.


Your responsibility as the host organisation will be as follows:

  • Provision of full-time work for eight (8) weeks during the vacation period.

  • A defined project which creates real value for the host organisation and a valuable learning experience for the intern.

  • Interaction with an assigned supervisor or mentor within the host organisation.

  • Payment of a salary no lower than the national minimal wage.

  • Submission of feedback at the end of the internship on the intern’s performance.

We look forward to your support as we expand our social footprint and make an impact on the careers and lives of our young women.  Please contact AFETT's Social Outreach Committee Head at to pledge your support.
