Internships - Two of our interns.

Internships in Rhode Island

Step into the Real World!

We encourage students to pursue internships to find out what’s expected in various work settings, especially in fields they might pursue after college. Through these experiences they develop practical knowledge and hands-on skills.

What Makes a Good Intern?

Mature students who are interested in an unpaid apprenticeship (and will follow through with their commitment) are eligible for internships. School One has a part-time Internship Coordinator who helps match students’ interests with internship opportunities.

Internships and College Admissions

Along with helping students discover careers they like (and sometimes those they don’t like), internships and recommendations from a mentor can be an impressive part of a high school transcript.

“We were very impressed with our School One intern. She helped to write curriculum for an online lesson plan for teachers about archaeology, which is college-level work (and above). She did her own research, wrote well, and did much of the work independently while keeping to deadlines. The product of her work added greatly to our project.”

“Farmacy Herbs is an urban farm that raises medicinal herbs and honey, and offers classes on herbalism, nutritional healing and gardening. Interns work with staff harvesting herbs, starting seeds and learning how to prepare herbal remedies. School One interns are always welcome here because they are committed to learning about herbs, and are happy to come to a place where they can be themselves.”

"With the support of my teachers, I made the best of the chance to audit college classes and complete professional internships while I was still in high school. I took on new challenges and became my own advocate, skills that have served me well as a woman working with technology start-ups."
