About the CCSC Senior Internship Program
In place for over a decade, the Senior Internship Program is a defining feature of CCSC and has proven to be immensely successful for our students. In the spring, each of our 12th grade students completes a 100-hour internship experience 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. In late May, seniors share their internship experience and work at a public Senior Internship Exhibition Night with CCSC faculty and administrators, the CCSC Board, partner organizations, and members of the local community.
The Senior Internship Program is a hallmark of the CCSC experience that provides all graduates with a 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.
If you know of a local organization that would be willing to consider a student for a meaningful internship in the spring of 2021 or if you would like to be a judge for our Senior Internship Exhibition Night this spring, please contact Noelani Gabriel at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the CCSC Senior Internship Program website.
