Internship Program for Stoughton High Seniors
A press release from Stoughton High School regarding an internship program for next year's senior class.
Registration for the 2011-2012 Internship Program at Stoughton High School is now open. Through the Internship Program, Stoughton High School seniors have an exciting opportunity to gain valuable real-world experience in their chosen career field while also earning high school credits.
The Internship Program at Stoughton High School has been designed to assist students in building a resume of experiences that will assist them in getting admitted to colleges, hired for future internships and jobs, and establishing a clearer direction for future career plans.
According to Kevin Smith, Director of the Internship Program, “The feedback we’re getting from colleges and employers has been great. They are excited that students have hands-on experience to go along with their academic credentials. It is an enormous addition to the student’s resume – especially for college internships and careers seeking work experience. We’ve created it so that any student, regardless of their future plans, can benefit from this program.”
Past SHS Internship Program participants have had successful experiences with employers such as: Tufts Medical Center – Boston, Fuller Craft Museum, Caritas Norwood Hospital, West Elementary School, Massachusetts School on Wheels, Adventure Dental, New England Cabinetry, Dawe Elementary School, and the Old Colony YMCA. Through Stoughton High School’s partnership with these employers, students have the opportunity to work alongside professionals and gain valuable industry skills years before many of their classmates.
Students interested in registering for the program should be upcoming seniors for the 2011-2012 school year and have completed the majority of the class and credit requirements. While in the program, students will complete their remaining academic requirements during the first five classes of the each school day. Students will then be released at 12:30pm to fulfill their required 10 hours per week at their internship site.
For more information about the program, students and parents can meet with Mr. Kevin Smith, Director of the Internship Program, in SHS Room D-309 or email him at email@example.com. Program enrollment is limited, so students are encouraged to register soon to guarantee their spot.
