Students at School Without Walls High School are required to complete an internship prior to graduation. In this course, students will obtain an internship in the community to strengthen their job skills, expose them to the world of work, and build professional relationships. As an intern, students will explore areas of interest to gain experience with networking, following deadlines, and improving written and spoken communication in a professional setting. Students’ abilities to plan ahead, multitask, and show flexibility and creativity will be huge assets during the Internship course.
Your internship is a class that all SWWHS students must take as juniors or seniors. In this class, students must complete 60 hours of internship work along with related coursework, such as reflections, resumes, and a portfolio.
It is expected that students will find their internship based on their own interests and career goals, however we have included a list below with the names of organizations that offer internships. In order to be successful, it is important to start this search in advance in order to secure your internship.
Please see the information included below for assistance and please reach out to your counselor or the internship coordinator directly with any questions.
