Abstract

The Iowa Internship Toolkit was a collaborative project between the Iowa Department of Education, the Iowa Work-Based Learning Coordinators and the Iowa Intermediary Network. Quality internship programs in Iowa have provided high school students the opportunity to: work on blueprints for clients at engineering firms; design a room for a client at an interior design company; assist a physical therapist by ensuring the final stretches a patient completes follows the directions of the physical therapist; assist a classroom educator by providing guided support for small group learning; develop, plan and lead an event for an organization; assist with small veterinarian procedures; and complete a rotational learning and training with various departments within a construction company. The examples provided are just a small sample of what students in your district can have access to through a quality high school internship program. Your students will learn, develop skills, contribute back to your community partners, build a professional portfolio and be prepared for postsecondary success.
