LEP HIGH is seeking support from the local business community for their Internship Program. Our high school’s education program is based on a philosophy of personal development through real-world experience and community engagement. This Internship Program is a requirement for ALL students so they are exposed professional environments related to their career interests. We designed our Internship Program to align with best-practice models around the country that share similar goals.
Our students have rigorously prepared for this experience through daily classes focused on workplace skills ranging from professionalism to time management and conflict resolution. Our students also spent several months engaging in personal exercises and reflections designed to help them define their career strengths.
Benefits for All Involved
Each internship relationship will be mutually beneficial: the student will gain workplace experience, while the business partner receives an infusion of energy and excitement from a young person who wants to learn and contribute to their business. Students earn credit for their participation in the internship program. While donations to sustain this program are deeply appreciated, there is no cost obligation to the business to participate in this program. In fact, internships are often a cost-effective way for businesses to receive additional support in reaching their performance goals. Finally, participating businesses will be recognized as valued partners with LÊP High through our school materials (fliers, website, etc.) and at community events, increasing visibility for goods and/or services.
