FALL AND SPRING INTERNSHIPS
Minimum Hours: 48
The Fall and Spring Internship Programs provide an 8-week intensive career exploration opportunity requiring students to spend 6 to 9 hours per week on the worksite with a mentor. Fall internships begin in early October, and Spring internships start in early February. The Internship program is recommended for juniors and seniors. Elective academic credits are available.
Minimum Hours: 54
Usually, students participating in the summer internship program must attend the accompanying Summer Internship Career Academy at the College of Marin. This class meets for four days out of the summer program. In addition, students will do a culminating presentation. Upon completion, students can earn up to 1.5 units of college credit.
SCHOOL TO CAREER PARTNERSHIP
The Marin County School to Career Partnership offers an Internship program for public high school students in Marin County. The program provides students the opportunity to gain hands-on workplace skills and test their academic knowledge in a real-world setting. Internship sessions are available in the Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Internships may vary depending upon the needs of the students, the needs of the employers, and the requirements of the School to Career program. Every effort is made to find an internship placement for students in one of their top three choices; however, some internships are not available every semester, and choices are limited in specific industry areas. The School to Career Liaison coordinates with students, teachers, and employers to ensure that each student has a meaningful learning experience. Most of the internships are unpaid, although there might be some paid opportunities.
