Internships / Community Experiences
SHADOW DAY EXPERIENCES:
Prior to beginning in an internship all students must participate in a minimum of one shadow day. Based on an identified interest students work with an Internship Coordinator to identify a potential business for a shadow day. During the shadow day students look to gain knowledge of given components of the business/career. Based on the information gathered, the student, business owner and internship coordinator determine if an internship is the next step.
Internships provide real world experience to students by giving them an opportunity to explore and gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field. Students work in an internship two afternoons per week. The students are evaluated by the business as well as the Internship Coordinator. Students receive elective credit for the work that they do at the internship sites.
