Click here to learn about the committee behind the Career Partnership Program
The Career Partnership Program is based in the Inter-Lakes High School Guidance department. It connects students with local businesses and exposes them to future career options. The program provides a variety of educational and experiential learning opportunities for students as they plan for life after high school. It allows students to experiment with different career options before committing to a college course or employment in a field.
The program is a collaborative effort among our business community, local educators, various civic organizations and the municipality and is funded through the Greater Meredith Program, the Inter-Lakes School District and the generous donations of local individuals, organizations and businesses. If you are able to donate, please contact us.
A job shadow is short-term, usually a few hours or half a day. Students follow a local professional to observe a career of interest They are encouraged to ask questions about training, skills and tasks associated with that career. The purpose of this experience is to provide a snapshot of various career opportunities.
An internship is a long-term (i.e. a semester), usually unpaid, experience. Juniors and Seniors are invited to schedule an internship at a local business of interest.
An internship has a set schedule each week and students participate in various functions within the business. Students make connections with the business community, gain knowledge and real world experience in a job field of interest and may also earn high school credit.
