Summer Internship for Educators


Summer Internship for Educators

The internship program is designed for area teachers, counselors or administrators to experience hands-on work that their students are typically seeking for employment. This experience will help to enhance classroom instruction for students while fostering partnerships between school and business. The internship places a participating educator in a 40-hour work experience during the summer at an area business. Participants record skills observed on the job and formulate curriculum recommendations, timelines for possible implementation and lesson plans after the internship.  You should only apply if you can complete a full week of internship.

  • MCC four county service area (Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy and Washington)

  3. How are interns selected? A committee comprised of representatives from business and industry will review applications.
