An internship can significantly help high school students make more informed decisions about their future college and career plans. Immersion in a professional work environment enhances understanding of an industry or career and provides insight into the day-to-day activities of a professional working in that industry.
Since 2002, Discovery Internships has helped motivated high school students make more informed decisions about their future by exploring career interests through a customized professional internship. The Discovery Internships program is an all-inclusive, internships experience. In addition to gaining hands-on, career-focused learning opportunities, participants explore and live in an exciting city. All program locations feature a safe and fun living and learning environment based in a college residence hall. A meal plan, 24-hour staff supervision and mentoring, and a host of cultural, recreational, and other community events and excursions around the city are all included. Participants receive access to supplementary professional development seminars that enhance the internship learning experience and help students excel on the job. Students receive academic credit for their internship and completion of related coursework from New York University (NYU). The Discovery Internships program is offered in Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, and New York. Applications are received from students in nearly every state in the U.S. and just as many countries.
How exciting! How fun. And fun learning is forever learning!
