MHS Senior Internships
Every year, Mamaroneck High School students have the opportunity to spend the final portion of their senior year gaining real world experience by completing an internship.
The benefits of a internship program are numerous. They allow seniors the opportunity to further develop an important skill set, including the development of workplace habits, professionalism and decorum, and interpersonal and communication skills. It also offers an opportunity for seniors to professionally network, something especially important in today’s competitive marketplace. Finally, internships allow seniors to meaningfully engage in the community at-large. Through this program, students are given the opportunity to get outside of their comfort zone and take risks. Here are some unexpected benefits of the internship experience, as reported by former students...
