 What Is an Internship?

An internship will provide you the opportunity to independently test out your life as a career professional by taking on a responsible role as an employee in a company or organization without a teacher or parent managing you.  Your internship has goals, tasks, responsibility and accountability. You will develop a deeper understanding of the duties, responsibilities and opportunities within a career path. You will use these new insights to analyze and revise your future educational and career plans.

What Do I Get out of a Summer Internship?

  • A chance to engage in meaningful, responsible adult work supporting your path to independence
  • Strengthen and improve your academic, technical and employability skills
  • Understand your own interests and abilities as they relate to work in the 21st century economy
  • Gain an understanding of how school relates to work as you use your academic, technical and employability skills in the world of work
  • Understand the importance of relationships with people different from yourself
  • Oh, you also get PAID!
