Educator Step 1: Prepare for an Internship


Review your school district guidelines regarding internships.  Utilize the Employer Toolkit as a resource for the internship process.  It contains internship information from an employers perspective and legal information.  Follow a general Internship-Readiness Syllabus.

Review state laws regarding paid & non-paid internships and child labor restrictions and exemptions.  The Bureau of Labor & Industries (BOLI) has information available on their website regarding current labor laws.

Youth CareerConnect partners commit to supporting their interns and employer host throughout the experience.  A clear understanding of the internship process, allows the educator to optimize the experience.
