Internship Pathways Description
What is the WLWV Internship Pathways program?
The Internship Pathways program is a work-based learning program where Sophomore, Juniors, or Seniors in high school gain hands-on experience at a local business, organization, or in the school district. Internships are unpaid carefully monitored work experiences where a student is trained in specific career area. Internships do not lead to employment at the end of the internship.
Students learn job specific skills, build their resume, and explore a career path.
After logging 30 project hours and completing career-based assignments a student earns .5 elective high school credit. Students also have the option of earning 1 Clackamas Community College (CCC) credit ($10 fee, waived for those on free or reduced lunch). To earn HS/CCC credit a student needs to complete career-based assignments in addition to the 30 hours project time. Assignments include interviewing a professional, researching a career field, and updating your resume.
(Fall openings are now closed, apply now to be notified when Winter/Spring 2022 opportunities become available)
