Host an Intern
New Roots Charter School Student Internships
Internships benefit New Roots students and the community alike. Students can earn an elective credit while exploring career options, developing practical life skills and applying academic knowledge.
How does it work?
Students are paired with a local business or organization that provides a mentor and opportunities for hands-on learning!
Interested students, businesses or organizations click on the links below, fill out and submit the appropriate form and we will contact you to establish an internship.
Students work with the New Roots Academic Dean and Internship Coordinator to find a free period or two during the week when they can make arrangements for traveling to their internship site. Students can also get credit for doing internships after school or during weekends.
Once the internship interest forms, downloadable contract and proof of insurance to cover the student during his or her contact hours are submitted the student can officially begin getting credit for his or her internship. Organizations that cannot provide insurance can work through the Learning Web to establish the internship agreement.
New Roots Charter School (NRCS) requires mentors to fill out time sheets and to provide reports every five weeks indicating the student's progress toward his or her learning goals. These reports help NRCS support students and ultimately they help determine if the student gets credit for his or her internship.
