    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, a parent or legal guardian will need to give written permission for a student to participate, and you counselor will visit the site to help make sure all policies are followed. After the paperwork is completed, 180 hours are required to earn .5 CTE credit per semester.
    • Please remember you are not guaranteed an internship but you are encouraged to apply and have your resume and cover letter ready at all times.

    Since 2004, Student Leaders has been part of our ongoing commitment to youth employment and economic mobility. Preparing a diverse pipeline of community-minded young students with the leadership training they need to be successful in the workforce is vital to our approach to driving responsible growth and helps to build thriving communities. Through our Student Leaders program we connect more than 300 community-minded high school juniors and seniors from nearly 100 communities to employment, skills development and service. They're awarded paid summer internships with local nonprofits such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Habitat for Humanity and participate in a national leadership summit in Washington, D.C. The Student Leaders Summit focuses on skill building and creating a more civically engaged society. Note: in-person events will be in line with local and national guidelines around gatherings and travel and may be subject to change.

    What is MentorU?

    MentorU is an opportunity for you to build on the strengths you already have. You can learn how to grow healthy relationships, set and achieve your personal goals, and receive support from a mentor.

    Once a month, students meet virtually with their mentors, hosted by Ms. Jen. The main goal is to ensure you feel supported, safe, have fun, and maybe even learn something new about yourself along the way.
