We're excited you're interested in our work-based learning program! This is an internship program offered only to students like you who want to test-drive a career. Participants can spend up to six months completing an unpaid internship for credit: you’ll get real job experience, boost your resume and employability after graduating, and test drive a career of your choice while still going to Brady and take advantage of elective credits you can apply towards your high school credits.
How can I join?
You've made the first step in reading and researching!
This is a big, rare, worthwhile "so worth it" commitment. You'll be expected to complete a paid part-time internship while still keeping up with your academics in school. At the end of the program, you can apply to be an intern on our website when the application opens. Ask a staff member if you need help. Everyone who applies will be interviewed by a panel of staff to determine whether you'll be selected for the program.
QUICK SHEET FOR INTERNS
Code of Conduct and Contract
The Work Base Learning program holds its participants to a high standard. These internships are a unique opportunity afforded to students that want to take it to the next level, and you will be representing the work-based learning program and yourself in the community. You are required to:
-Be a current (junior and senior) high school student. Ex, a student who would graduate during a quarter (mid-semester) would not be eligible for an internship.
-Must be at least 16 years old (work permit may be needed)
-Complete the work-ready training to begin your internship
-Maintain good attendance and behavior
-Make a commitment to your employer
We also have equivalent expectations of our interns on the job, as do most of our partners. On the job, we expect all of our interns to:
-Follow your employer’s expectations and maintain work-appropriate behavior
-Maintain good communications with both your employer and program
-Attend your internship as agreed upon by yourselves, your employer, and the program
-Additionally, we expect all of our Brady students to practice the four Brady agreements: be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions, and always do your best.
Communication is key both in the work-based learning program and the workforce. You will be expected to regularly and efficiently communicate with both the work base learning staff and your employer. The Internship Program mainly uses the GroupMe app and email for intern communication.
