Academic Internship Program seeks participants
Mount Olive High School is providing students with internship opportunities in the fields of law, education, physical therapy, and technology, with more opportunities in other categories to come. Local businesses that are willing to participate will provide unpaid internship opportunities to high school students. Dr. Tim Kelly, who is coordinating the program said that, "Any students who are interested in participating in an internship and obtaining more work experience should get involved in this program."
The program can accommodate any student schedule and is accepting students all year round. Additionally, new business opportunities will be added throughout the 2014-2015 school year. The internship program provides students with opportunities to experience work in their desired fields and gain understandings about the operation of the workplace. Students can earn credit for these internships, as well as make connections that will last well beyond their high school years. Businesses that participate help students discover their passions, while providing them with real world experience.
The internship opportunities that have been posted thus far in the school year are opportunities to work both in and out of the Mount Olive School District. For example, students can apply for an internship with the Curriculum Office, working with Mr. Peter Hughes as their supervisor. One opportunity that will take students out of the Mount Olive environment is an internship with Surfer Network, in which students will complete tasks in the technology field.
Individuals and businesses that wish to provide internships and students who wish to participate should contact Dr. Kelly via email at email@example.com or in person in B107 for more details.
