What is the Internship and Community Project Program?
AHAHS is proud to offer our on-track 12th Grade students the opportunity to engage in real-world learning experiences, either through an Internship or Community Project partnership. This experience encourages students to begin the transition from high school to post-secondary education and career exploration in practical, hands-on contexts under the guidance of business and community Partners, with direct teacher supervision and support. https://sites.google.com/site/academyheadsaha/home/internships
What are the Program requirements?
Only 12th grade students who are currently on-track to graduate in May 2012 may participate. Students must provide transportation to/from their Internship or Community Project site, and are responsible for meeting both Program and Partner requirements. Students must communicate with their Teacher Supervisor on a regular basis, and adhere to the Evaluation requirements created for their placement. https://sites.google.com/site/academyheadsaha/student-internship-registration-application-document
How many hours per week must students complete?
Students must complete 6 hours per week at their Internship or Community Project site in order to earn credit for the course.
When will students complete their hours?
The AHAHS “Senior Schedule” requires that students complete their mandated Program hours on Fridays (not including holidays). Should the Student and Partner agree, additional volunteer hours may be completed on other days, but may not conflict with the Student(s) class schedule(s).
How long will the Program last?
The Internship/Community Project Program is scheduled to last through April 2012.
How will the school support Students and Partners in the Program?
Each Student and Partner will work directly with a Senior Team Teacher Supervisor, who will facilitate communication, establish a working agreement between the Partner and Student(s), visit Partner sites, and conduct evaluations of Student performance. Teacher Supervisors are the first point of contact for Partners, Students and Families, and will provide support and guidance through the duration of the Program. Additional support from AHAHS Academy Heads, and the Internship Coordinator, are available as needed.
How are Students assigned to a Partner?
The AHAHS team works hard to ensure that both Partner and Student needs guide Program assignments. Factors taken into account are Partner availability, specific needs of a business or organization, Student areas of interest, required skills, and location are taken into account.
How will students be placed in a Community Service Project?
During the first Orientation meeting of the semester - Friday August 19th (Fall) and Friday January 6th (Spring) - students will be able to select their assignment on a first-come, first served basis. Short descriptions of the projects will be available to help student choose.
When/how will students meet their Teacher Supervisor and Partner?
AHAHS has designated the first several Friday Program Days as Orientation and Placement Days. The schedule is as follows:
FALL SEMESTER 2011:
SPRING SEMESTER 2012:
Who can I contact if I have questions?
