Professional Internship Program
The Professional Internship Program (PIP) is an excellent way for high school seniors to gain experience in a career field or industry of their choice prior to taking college level courses. Area businesses sponsor students for a one semester, unpaid internship. PIP interns are on-site with their sponsors for approximately 8 hours per week, assisting the sponsors with any and all types of work- related activities, in order to provide the students with a snapshot of the daily work environment. PIP interns are selected to the program by application, interview and teacher recommendations. They must be students with good grades, conduct and attendance and must have reliable transportation. PIP if for mature senior students who are eager to learn about careers they are considering for their future.
