    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.

    ACE Mentoring Email Announcement

     

    Are you interested in Architecture, Construction or Engineering?  ACE Mentors is a free after-school program which pairs high school students with professional mentors from the building industry.  We are committed to having a virtual ACE program for the 2020-2021 school year.  During your Zoom meetings – we are anticipating three 6-8 week blocks of weekly 90-minute sessions – you will participate with other students and your mentors in activities ranging from virtual construction site visits to actually designing a unique building project. 

    The program runs from the beginning of November through May and is open to students in grades 9-12.  At the end of the year, your team will have the opportunity to present their project to other teams, mentors, professionals, and parents. 

    Seniors in the program are also eligible to apply for scholarships.  Last year 14 students received a total of $100,000 in scholarships in the ACE Washington chapter. 

    Sign up for ACE today at www.acementor.org/students! Please submit your application online by Friday, October 16th.

    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.
