What is the ACLC Internship Program?

The purpose of the ACLC Internship requirement is to expose learners to the working world and career opportunities. During the course of the program, learners will:

  • Research their personal interests and skills
  • Build a resume highlighting those skills and interests
  • Pursue and secure an internship of their choice
  • Report findings and observations during/after the internship

Who is required to participate in the internship program?

It is a graduation requirement that all learners have completed the internship program. Although it may be easier for older leaners to obtain the internship of their choice, learners will have the latitude to meet the internship requirement anytime between their junior and senior years, summers included.

*The Internship must be approved by the School Counselor prior to starting.  Please remember to pick up an ACLC Internship Packet from the School Counselor prior to starting!

What are the requirements?

  1. 20-hour internship duration (minimum)
  2. Ongoing weekly journal of learner’s experience
  3. Positive feedback from internship provider (supervisor)
  4. Appropriate paperwork compiled and filed
  5. Closing report from learner at the end of internship engagement. This closing report, in no less than 500 words, will address:
