EPIC students in 11th and 12th grades can participate in an internship program to receive specialized training throughout the community in a variety of industries. For example, EPIC has students who have completed internships in churches, law firms, interior design companies, dental offices, local YMCA locations, and many more.

This program allows students to spend time in a particular career field while earning high school credit. The course work for the internship includes spending a minimum of 60 hours during the semester in a career field of interest while developing career-specific skills and building the resume of experiences.

Internships are available both internally at EPIC and externally with any organization statewide. Teachers or College & Career Readiness Staff are available to facilitate an internship placement. However, students will be responsible for securing the position.

Below you will find a list of internship opportunities from across the state with organizations who have indicated they are willing to partner with EPIC students. You are not required to pick from this list.

**EPIC is always seeking to increase our community and business partnerships. If you would like to add your organization to the list please contact Nicole Ellison at nicole.ellison@epiccharterschools.org
