“Students will experience what it is like working for a boss, working with co-workers, having deadlines, managing time and countless other benefits,” counselor Elizabeth Hare said.
Once accepted to the program, students will either work at the Clark County Government Center or be placed at various work environments, such as banking, architecture and engineering firms and government institutes.
“[Students] can talk to their counselor, their program teachers, search the web and call different organizations to ask about their internship policies,” Hare said. “It is never too early to start asking questions.”
The internship is a 10-week commitment and interns will be paid for their work on Monday – Thursday. On Fridays, students will attend workshops to learn and build life skills at the Clark County Government Center.
“After learning about the internship, I think it is a great opportunity for what I want to do in life,” junior Jessica Wiley said. “I want to own my own business and being able to work in that field is really cool. Getting to listen to people who have experience in business and learning from that will help in the future.”
An online application, transcript and two letters of recommendation are required in order to qualify for the internship. Students must be at least 16-years-old and in high school. Applications must be turned in by Feb. 8 at 5 p.m.
“It’s a great way to practice working and applying the knowledge they have learned in school,” Hare said. “It gives students a deeper understanding of their program area and also helps students get a feel for what work-life is like.”
