Internships are structured work-based experiences that incorporate a strong school-based academic foundation. A senior internship provides students with the opportunity to gain practical, first-hand knowledge in various types of businesses. The internship is designed to give students an opportunity to blend occupational and academic learning and to apply knowledge and skills learned in a classroom to actual work situations.
The major purpose of a senior internship is to develop identified skills and habits to a specified career field. The student will get knowledge and skills in their career interest area, help them decide if this is a field that really holds their interest, and develop strong work habits and soft skills that lead to successful work experiences. Additionally, students will improve communication, interpersonal, problem-solving and teambuilding skills while gaining a better understanding of the link between the classroom and the workplace. Ultimately students will develop an awareness of community resources and career opportunities available to them. Students participating in the senior internship program may or may not receive wages and credit may be earned upon satisfactory completion on the internship.
The student will maintain regular contact with the school through a certified teacher. They report in person to the teacher about once per week, and the teacher also maintains contacts with the "employer" , the workplace where the student serves the internship.
