Application & I-9 Verification for Teen Interns
Welcome to your After School Matters Internship!
Here are a few things you need to do before your program starts.
All ASM internships require teens to submit a completed W4 and I-9 form before they start their program. After accepting your internship offer you will be asked to attend a document collection day so you can submit your necessary documents for employment verification. At the document collection site, you will be asked to present certain documents like your birth certificate or social security card for verification and to be sure all names match in our system. Let’s get started!
- Step 1: Complete the I-9 form by clicking on this link or scanning this QR code. You may also complete the form in-person during your employment verification at one of our locations listed below.
- Step 2: Gather your social security card and other necessary documents to bring with you for your employment verification at one of the locations and dates listed below.
- Step 3: Complete the W4 electronic form that is emailed to you with your internship offer.
You must complete the employment eligibility verification before the start of your program.
