Internship placements for High School Students to meet graduation requirements (ages 15-19)
We work with schools to provide Artisan Internships, Service Learning Internships, and Career Exploration Internships. Internships can be set up for varying durations. They provide real world experiences in which young adults gain practical experience to help them shape their life choices regarding possible careers, education and hobbies. This is a fee-based program.
Artisan Internships: The artisan workplace is usually a small shop or home business where tangible products are made primarily by hand. From Indian Warli paintings to working with clothing designers or soap making, there are a multitude of possibilities. Due to the nature of these businesses and their irregular hours and conditions, placements are harder to find than in a corporate setting. We help students get a firsthand experience of how things are made.
Service Learning Internships: Often students look to the world to discover their own capacity to serve and contribute. Experiences working at service organizations such as the Overbrook School for the Blind or non-profits such as the daycare center Mom’s Place can be life changing and inspiring. We help students find service opportunities that match their interests and talents well.
Career Elective Internships: Students can choose any kind of workplace that interests them as a possible career direction, for-profit or non-profit. Interns work under experienced mentors who guide their work experience and give feedback on strengths and areas of possible growth. We help identify the placements and monitors the student’s progress.
