Our graduates pursue study in a variety of disciplines. In addition to fundamental skills necessary for success in any career, our Center focuses on leadership, ethical behavior patterns, and real-world challenges.

 

As a culminating activity, students are required to complete an unpaid internship during the second semester of their senior year. The goal for the internship is two fold: to give the students a meaningful, hands-on experience in a career area of personal interest and to examine the leadership styles exhibited at this particular business.

 

 

Objectives for the internship program:

 

  • To give students hands-on experiences

  • To learn about their possible career interests

  • To observe leadership modules used at particular businesses

  • To obtain meaningful experiences and life skills

  • To apply skills learned in Leadership classes

  • To receive guidance from internship hosts.
