  • Branch employee during a portion of the 
  • workday, and is offered from February 1 through 
  • April 30.

  • The Court Aide Program allows high school 
  • seniors to further explore career interests and

  • opportunity to work for a week with a Judicial 
  • Branch employee. This program is offered from

Seniors will be eligible to apply online beginning Sunday, January 1, 2017 and will have one month to complete their application located at

www.stamford-sie.org

Applicants will be able to view all available internships on Friday, February 3rd or can

 self-design their own with approval from the Program Coordinator.


The Senior Internship Experience will take place from May 15, 2017 to June 9, 2017 (ending date subject to change based on graduation date). The internships will provide various experiential learning opportunities at different locations across the city. This program will give students the opportunity to pursue their unique interests, passions and talents with hands on job experience.


Students who are approved to participate in the Senior Internship Experience will finish their regular classes, after AP testing and will have their grades finalized and classwork requirements ended as they go to their internship sites full-time (30 hours per week). The internships will take the place of attending school for the last four weeks of classes. All internships are UNPAID. Students will be assigned to a position and will have a mentor on the job and a school faculty mentor who will monitor their progress throughout the internship.
