A diverse group of Team Leaders exist at each location with a mission to provide young adults an unique educational opportunity and work experience. We have a secret “Handshake” with University of Central Florida and several other Universities, offering paid Internships, Apprenticeships and Florida Bright Futures Scholarship programs to develop young talent.
Each year, selected college students come to our center to participate in the Work-Study Program, where students get to play “real Monopoly” or “Apprentice” or simply get Street Smart. Students learn about business operations, client relations, retail policies and compete in creative marketing challenges. More important, this is a place to develop work ethics, leadership and life lessons. Explore all the reasons why working at our local Mail Center is a place to learn, work hard, have fun, fellowship and make an impact. By invitation, Team Members can be on the path to being a Store Leader, Guardian or Managing Operator.
Unique to our program, 20% of the time is invested in business development, where we encourage all staff to innovate, develop new products or work on creative projects. Instead of the typical annual bonuses that some companies may or may not offer these days, we believe in giving merit awards or bonuses (scholarship) half yearly for working on these project initiatives. After your 14 work-days challenge and certifications, you will automatically qualify for these awards, along with all the office parties and movie nights.
Our operations are divided into two services under the leadership of:
- Student Lead: Abby
- Marketing: Marie
- Quartermaster: Julian
- Guardians of the Store: Fernando, Kena
- Stewardship: Leo
Student Apprentices will be trained by Student Lead and Guardians of the Store in the two respective services. You begin with a 14 work-days challenge of shipping carrier services, packaging, mail sorting, office faxing, digital scanning, cash register handling, printing, photocopying, laminating and spiral binding. This covers the Core Office Services and you can take on more challenges in Business Consultancy Services. Every staff will have the opportunity to gain exceptional knowledge in a wide range of technology. Continuous education is always part of our center, you will learn to deal with difficult clients, learn softwares such as PostalMate, Adobe Pro Suites (Graphics), Web Publishing (Word Press), Information Technology Services, Office Suites, Photography, Marketing and Content Creation (like YouTube).

Internships provide Experiential Learning (EXL) on-the-job training in a field that the student wants to learn more about or plans to pursue after graduation in High School or College. An internship can also help you discover what career path is right or wrong for you. Although College Students are not required to utilize internships as credit, if you meet the minimum qualifications outlined by your university, you can. For UCF, it is the students responsibility to make an appointment with your Internship Coordinator through myKnight STAR to determine if course credit is available. For international students, Review the F-1 Optional Practical Training (OPT) section and feel free to set up a meeting to speak with a UCF Global representative for more information. We offer two semesters of internship followed by one more semester of Co-Op. You can choose to continue more years as you see needed. An Internship Experience Mentor will support you throughout your internship program.
Both the FLSA and Florida law restrict when and how many hours of work for minors. Minors 16 – 17 may participate in Junior Internship programs up to 30 hrs/wk for no more than 8 hours a day when school is scheduled the following day. On days when school does not follow, there are no hour restrictions. When school is not in session, there are no limitations but no more than 6 consecutive days in any one week.
