The goal of HNS Paid Volunteer Internship Program is to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with area schools that will allow students to explore career fields and gain practical work experience, while helping businesses meet their needs and earn school credits for secondary education.
The program places teens with mentors in 4-15 week career-related work experiences that align with career pathways and allow them to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to a professional work environment. Internships are meant to enhance the student’s educational background by providing opportunities for career exploration and development of industry specific skills, while encouraging personal growth.
HNS Internship Program places teens in our year round programs with mentors in career-related work experiences that allow them to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to a professional work environment. Employers benefit from the experience as well, with students helping to accomplish business needs and supervisors enjoying a positive mentorship experience.
