Senior Internship Program

Welcome Seniors, Mentors, Advisors, and CCSC Community

About the CCSC Senior Internship Program:

  • Now in its 11th year, the Senior Internship Program at Community Charter School of Cambridge has been immensely successful and helps define our school. Each spring, each of our 12th graders is placed with one of our partner organizations. Our partners include non-profits, universities, businesses, technology firms, community centers, and other organizations in and around Kendall Square, Cambridge, and Boston.
  • The Senior Internship Program is a hallmark of the CCSC experience that provides all graduates with meaningful, real-world experience in a professional setting. The internship experience has undoubtedly helped our graduates as they matriculate to colleges across the country. The program also helps to prepare our students for productive citizenship. Participation is a requirement for graduation. As we grow, we are always looking for new internship sites for our program, so thank you for taking a moment to learn about CCSC’s Senior Internship Program.
  • If you know of a local organization that would be willing to consider a student for a meaningful internship in the spring of 2019 or if you would like to be a judge for our Senior Internship Exhibition Night this spring, please contact
