Obtaining real world work experience may seem like a challenge for a high school student, but it is worth the effort to help your teen discover their strengths and interests before they choose a career path. A well planned internship can be a great way for a student to explore a possible career and Apologia Educational Ministries has created Internship for High School Credit to walk students and parents through the process. The 99 page spiral bound workbook will help you and your student plan, research and find an internship that is right for them. Preparation tips will help them in their new venture from day one, and worksheets will help them evaluate the experience and document their work for credit. Completing an internship will also bolster their college application, and show off your student’s motivation in a tangible way.
My soon-to-be high school senior and I sat down recently to explore this resource and plan her senior year. We found this book to be extremely beneficial to our planning process, and although she has not yet obtained an internship, we are confident that she will be able to find one that is a good fit by following the recommendations provided in the book.
