Welcome to the NCHS Senior Internship Program
Thank you for your interest in the NCHS Senior Internship Program (SIP) and for considering hosting a student Intern in your organization.
The following information will provide a general overview of the SIP.
Student internship programs enable young people to learn first-hand about the workplace, benefiting not only the students but their community, their employers and their school. For the participating businesses and organizations, known as work sites in the SIP, Interns provide motivated, eager workers for the duration of the internship, give insiders a fresh look at their business or organization, and provide a potential pool of future employees known to the employer and familiar with that particular workplace. In addition, the businesses and organizations which host an Intern are helping in the education and formation of a young person. The NCHS Senior Internship Program is designed to provide students with workplace experience, opportunity for career exploration and transition from high school.
