Internships are not just for college students anymore.  Professionals in businesses and organizations across the region are participating in high school internship programs as mentors during the summer months as well as throughout the school year.  In Anne Arundel County Public Schools ninety-eight percent (98%) of the business mentors can't wait to get their next high school intern.

High school interns have a lot to offer their internship sites.  Today's students experience much more than the traditional high school curriculum and are highly-qualified to contribute in meaningful ways to the internships they pursue.  Don't let the perceived lack of experience deter you from considering a high school intern.  High school students have significant skill-sets as well as workplace professional and social skills.  High school magnet programs such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Biomedical and Allied Health, Performing and Visual Arts, and Signature programs prepare students to come to their internships with a wide variety of experience and a passion for learning.

Whether you need to complete a highly specialized project or need assistance in completing every day tasks, there is a high school intern to fit your needs.  For example, many employers might need a tech-savvy student to help them with their social media presence, perform market research or much more.

In Anne Arundel County Public Schools, our online internship portal -- www.aacpsstudentinernships.org -- and team of internship facilitators will make selecting and managing an intern a rewarding experience for you and your business.
