How many hours per week can students work?

Students can work up to 10 hours per week at the rate of $10.50 per hour. Students work up to 10 hours, so that they can balance their internship with their required coursework for graduation.

Are students available the same days and times each week?

  • Students are not available at the same day and times each week, because each school operates on their own bell schedule and students have unique class schedules. Students also have their own personal responsibilities outside of school.
  • Some students have early release and some students have a full class schedule and are not available until the end of the school day (3:30 – 4 PM).
  • Many schools operate on a block schedule. This means that a student may get out early at 2 PM Monday, Wednesday, Friday one week and may get out early at 2 PM Tuesday – Thursday the following week.
  • Note: Students at the Opportunity Academies (Luke C. Moore, Roosevelt STAY, Ballou STAY, and Washington Metropolitan HS) are enrolled in an Internship Class. This means, these students are available to work Monday – Thursday from around 2:30 to close of business.
  • Students will provide their schedule availability at Interview Day. Host Employers will also be required to create an intern schedule, as a part of intern orientation.

What types of internships are we seeking for Career Bridge students?

Career Bridge students are seniors who have expressed interest in entering directly into the workforce or a short-term training program after high school graduation. Career Bridge internships should develop skills that students need to successfully enter the workforce after graduation. Ideally, internships should have the potential to turn into a part-time or full-time employment opportunity, if a student successfully completes their internship and demonstrates the required skills necessary for the position.
