    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 school year or summer. If a student wants to earn high school credit for an internship, they should meet with their school's Career Connected Learning Coordinator (CCLC). The CCLC will visit the site to help make sure all policies are followed, meet with parents/guardians, and meet with the employer. After the parents/guardians give written permission, students can start tracking hours. 180 hours are required to earn 0.5 CTE credit per semester. Please remember you are not guaranteed an internship and you are encouraged to apply and have your resume and cover letter ready at all times.
