The Summer Internship Program is a short-term learning and employment opportunity for Williamson County Schools students. The summer internship provides students an opportunity to study a program directly related to his or her career interest and to participate in a workplace setting by performing duties related to the occupation being studied. Internships are intended to be short-term activities and are designed to meet the needs of students regardless of their focus of study. The major purpose of the internship learning experience is for the intern to receive broad instruction in workplace expectations, confirm, narrow, or expand choices of career interest; develop an understanding of the connection between school-based theory and content and work-based applications; and increase awareness of the workplace, career opportunities, and community resources. Participants will be assigned to work at a Williamson County business for twenty hours per week for two weeks. Participants are expected to provide their own transportation to both the training and work sites.
