Student Work Experiences - Spring 2024
SPPS partners with the City of Saint Paul’s Right Track program to offer youth employment experiences and strengthen college and career opportunities in high schools across the district. Spring internships are an incredible way for students to gain work experience while in high school and learn about how businesses work.
Since starting the program in 2021, around 200 SPPS students have completed work experiences with more than 50 employer partners. Students have completed work experiences in business and communications, human services, innovative and emerging technologies, and science and medical fields.
SPPS high school students interested in applying for a paid spring 2024 internship can sign up using the Right Track registration form. Please contact your WBL Coordinator if you have questions about the Career Seminar course.
Information for Potential Business Partners:
Saint Paul Public Schools is seeking local business partners to host work experiences for high school students in spring 2024. High school students greatly benefit from gaining this meaningful work experience and exploring career possibilities.
Business and organization partners are asked to hire two student interns from February 1 to May 17, 2024, for up to 80 hours at $13 per hour. Work experiences can be project-based or job shadowing where students meet with different departments within an organization.
Interested employers can contact the Work-Based Learning Coordinator at the high school they are interested in working with (see contacts below). Apply by the end of October to guarantee interns for this spring. We appreciate our employer partners for supporting the next generation of leaders!
