Senior Internship Program

Internship Program Description and Objectives

The Holy Child Senior Internship Program is designed to give senior students an opportunity to explore their career interests and gain experience working in a professional environment. It is a graduation requirement for each senior and must consist of a minimum of 30 hours or 4 work days performed on-site at a business or non-profit organization. All internships must be completed May 21st- 29th, 2018.
These internships are unpaid positions. They are intended to be a learning opportunity for the students. Students shadow professionals to get a better understanding of the many career options that are available to them.
We believe students will benefit enormously from the opportunity to observe professionals at work and discuss their career interests with adults working in a variety of fields. What we look for:

  • A structured and supervised learning experience for the student intern.
  • A sponsor who is available to answer questions about their profession in order to help the student better understand her own career options.
  • A sponsor who will explain worksite rules, regulations, policies, and procedures.

Timeline

Between January and March students will research and plan for an intern position with Mrs. Wells in the College Counseling Office. By mid-April all internship positions will be confirmed. Students will complete their internship between May 21st and 29th, 2018. Students will do a brief presentation on their internship to parents, advisors, and intern sponsors on Wednesday, May 30th at 6:30 p.m.
