In the fall of 2013, People’s Prep launched its internship program. In its first year, we had approximately 30 interns in the program; this year, we have 44 interns placed in 22 external organizations in addition to several in-school placements. Through an internship elective course, students participate in 10 hours of training prior to beginning their internships. They also receive professional development twice per month to teach them new skills, as well as reflect on their work experiences. Students in grades 10-12 are eligible to be interns.
