Through partnerships with the community, students can learn important career and technical skills and knowledge, academic mindsets and skills, as well as the 21st-century problem-solving, collaboration, and interpersonal skills they need to be career- and college-ready. The Met High School in Providence, Rhode Island, supports such school-community partnerships through their Learning Through Internship program.

In this session, veteran Met High School principal Arthur Baraf and a group of Met High School students will present information about how their school’s Learning Through Internship program works. Presenters will share problems, solutions, systems, structures, and strategies that can help schools build or improve a rigorous and personalized internship programs.

Participants will learn (1) systems, structures, and strategies for finding, setting up, and managing internships for all students; (2) systems, structures, and strategies to support mentors and develop high-quality learning through internships; and (3) how to maximize, document, and assess the student demonstrations of learning and mastery that happen at internships.
