AMARILLO HISPANIC CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
With the help of West Texas A&M University, the Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is able to provide internship opportunities to students. The AHCC offers internship positions regarding two distinct business fields, Business Management and Marketing. Through these internships, our student interns are able to network and establish relationships with a variety of possible mentors. The main goal for our internship program is to foster learning experiences, and teach the students the necessary skills in order to be successful in their future careers. The AHCC is proud to have opportunities for students to learn, work, and grow. Our internship program rewards the interns with a $750 scholarship at the beginning of the semester and another $500 scholarship at the end of the semester. We want to thank our members and scholarship sponsors; your great support is what gives the Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce the opportunity to continue to grow our successful internship program.
