Independent Learning Program








Change a young person's life!


Host a Summit Public Schools high school student in our course-credit school program.



Summit Public Schools offers a unique internship program that often translates into life changing experiences for our students.

We are seeking opportunities for our students to do an 8-week internship in local organizations.

  • The goal of this internship program is to provide students with workplace skills and career  exploration opportunities through project-based learning in a real world environment.

  • Eight weeks long:  Students work at their internships for anywhere between 4-8 hours each day for a total of 30 hours each week (see dates below).  Each student will work out a set schedule, objectives, and sign  a contract with their workplace supervisor prior to beginning the internship.

  • Our volunteer Interns are covered by Summit Public Schools liability insurance while on site or participating in any activity related to their internship.

  • Students are not paid, and receive school course credit for the internship.

  • Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from their internship.

  • We are seeking internships from San Francisco to San Jose for these Bay Area high schools:
