The CTE internship program allows selected students to obtain real-world work experience in a field related to their career interests.  Students are exposed to diverse situations and hands-on tasks that help with career and post-secondary planning, not to mention the addition of valuable work experience to their resume.  Because of our strong relationships with local businesses, we have successfully placed hundreds of students in a wide variety of internships throughout the county. 
Our CTE internship Program is application-based and all students are thoroughly screened to ensure the right fit and the highest level of success.  Many students may contact a business or organization before securing a placement.
Students complete 120 hours over the semester and earn one academic credit. Students are monitored throughout their internship experience by the Career Development Coordinator.
