The purpose of the 2019 Summer Rock Internship Program is to accelerate personal, as well as professional, skills development and career-related exposure for rising High School Seniors. This structured, earn-and-learn (paid internship) model will provide students with a meaningful, career pathway experience that will serve as a foundational element of their Academic & Career Plan (ACP); thereby, positioning students for future academic and workplace success. As such, students will gain: valuable interviewing, job searching and resume building experience; direct, career exposure at a worksite; opportunities to develop or improve communication, critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills; and important networking connections. For a recap of the 2018 program, click here.
Internship placements will be determined by a combination of factors, including but not limited to: match-making / compatibility with student ACP and the types of available internships. The program will last for a total of six weeks (i.e. up to 30 hours per week), beginning on June 10th with a Signing and Orientation Day. Then on June 17th, students will report to their designated worksites. Additional activities will take place at BTC's Central Campus, as well. The last day of the program is August 2nd. Additional program details are highlighted below.
