Learn how teachers will support the Career Ready Internship initiative.

Information for Teachers

Teachers and in-school staff will serve a vital role in supporting the Career Ready Internship Initiative. The main areas of support include:

  • Teaching the Tenacity Employability Skills curriculum
  • Identifying students to participate in the internship program
  • Providing support to interns during the interview process and the internship program

From September through the beginning of April, school-based staff will engage and prepare students for interviews and ultimately the internship program through facilitation of the Tenacity curriculum. Every intern must complete the learning modules selected by their school staff prior to interviewing for an internship position.

School staff will also identify and encourage students to apply to the internship program and to sign up for interviews. Once interns are selected and the program begins, school staff will serve as the administrative liaison between the students, Host Employers, Central Office and DOES staff.
