Student Internships

Internships are unpaid or paid work experience which allows a student to learn about a career field and involves a regular commitment of time over a fixed period. Internships can vary in duration and schedule.

Internship sponsors provide a worksite for a high school junior or senior; provide a project or set of experiences so students can earn academic credit; help students understand what skills, training and personal qualities are required in their field.

Some internships have been: Acton Medical Associates, Acton Police Department, BAE Systems, Blanchard Memorial School, Boston Rescue Mission, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Cisco Systems, Concord District Court, Emerson Hospital, Fidelity Investments, Fruitlands Museum, Graham & Harsip, Holiday Inn, Indian Hill Music Center, Middlesex Savings Bank, Monster.com, Office of Pam Resor, Scheier & Katin, Science Discovery Museum, 3Com Corporation, Turner Construction Co., Valley Orthopaedics, and the World Trade Center, Boston.
