• Internship

    WCSD is proud to offer students an opportunity to engage with local businesses to learn about career opportunities, understand job skills and expectations, and develop a network of resources to assist students with success after graduation.

    Group internships are available to 11th and 12th grade students: 

    Group Internships

    Group internships are organized by career field, facilitated by a teacher with knowledge of the industry and focus on understanding the range of career opportunities available in the field.  Groups of 8-24 students visit a variety of industry sites, engage in projects associated with the career field, and gain an understanding of the knowledge, skills and education needed for specific pathways within the field.

    To earn credit, students must attend orientation, all scheduled classes, meet specific learning outcomes, complete assignments, and participate in a final project presentation.

    Group internships start the second week of each semester and end the week prior to finals.

  • Renown Internship Presentations

    In December 2018, the WCSD internship students presented their medical internship experiences in Mack Auditorium at Renown Medical Center.  In an expanding collaborative effort between WCSD Signatures and CTE,  WCSD Gifted and Talented Program (GATE), and Renown Medical Center, 36 students had the opportunity to participate in medical internships this last semester.  Students from throughout the district had the chance to share their experiences shadowing and interning in departments throughout the hospital. The event was well attended by family and friends. It was evident that these experiences impacted the students and their future career choices.  Students shared moving experiences like witnessing a death, or a birth, all under the watchful guidance of Renown's caring staff.  Listening to their stories revealed how much impact experiences like this have for students.  Renown has facilitated this opportunity with access to real life experiences that allow students to experience the medical field first hand.
