CLIHS Internship Program

Work: Connection to the Economic Mainstream and a Competitive Advantage for College Admission

ALL CLIHS 11th graders do 12-week internships during the spring semester that give them work experience in the real world. By interning in private companies, non-profit organizations, government agencies and schools, Claremont students are taking an important step in developing the independence they will need to succeed in college and the labor force. The critical skills interns learn include being responsible for themselves, communicating effectively with supervisors and colleagues, and problem-solving. Another benefit of the CLIHS Internship Program is that our students, who are relatively new citizens of New York City, gain experience navigating different parts of the city by public transportation and communicating in English with people outside of their communities.
