The length of time spent at each job placement usually lasts three to four weeks for a minimum of 1½ to 2 hours per day. A minimum of 20-30 hours of employment exploration is required from each employer. Days are set aside for contact with the program coordinator to review and discuss career exploration experiences. Students must be 17 and provide their own transportation. Work experience in the internship program is generally on a non- paid basis. The student must maintain medical insurance at his/her parents’ expense during this class.
