INTERESTED IN HOSTING A BEAVER INTERN THIS SPRING?
Each May, seniors undertake an internship as the culmination of their Beaver education. We are reaching out to parents/guardians to find out if you, or organizations you are affiliated with, are interested in hosting a student intern from May 6 to June 5. Students will commit 20 to 30 unpaid hours per week for the internship (Monday-Thursday). Please fill out this form by October 19 if you think your place of work could benefit from an intern. Contact Joe Robinson , Senior Experience Program Director, for more information or questions.
