Student Internship Information

What is a student internship?
Funded through Robbinsdale Area Schools Community Education, student internships provide high school students, 15 years of age or older, work experience and the opportunity to explore future career paths.

What does a student intern do?
A student intern may work in an office atmosphere or work hands-on in a variety of ways with youth or adults. The intern could be placed within the Robbinsdale School District or in the greater Robbinsdale Area Schools community. Job placement and specific duties are determined during an interview between the student and the program supervisor.

When does a student intern work?
Internships are generally flexible; most students work 8-10 hours per week. Work schedules follow the school year calendar. Generally, students work after school until approximately 5:00 pm. Morning and early afternoon internships are also available for students with a more flexible school-day schedule. Student internships are also available in the summer and generally require a greater weekly time commitment.

How many hours can I work?
Internships are not to exceed 10 hours a week.

What type of commitment is necessary?
It depends on the specific internship that a student is interested in. Typically, an intern is asked to commit a semester, school year, or a summer to the position.

Who is eligible?
Robbinsdale Area Schools students, age 15 or older, are eligible.

How do I apply?

What happens once I apply?
We will notify you to set up an interview. Staff will explore Internship options.

Am I guaranteed a job?
