What is an Internship?

An Internship is a workplace experience, like a job, which can help you grow and learn about careers you might want to pursue.  An internship will have a position description, several learning objectives, as well as start and end dates.

  • An internship can be full or part-time, paid or unpaid, and offered during the summer and or the school year.     
  • A legal guardian will need to give written permission for a student to participate, and a school representative will help make sure all policies are followed.
