    For continuing Interns:

    • If you are continuing at your Term 1 internship site, you can start your hours immediately. Work with your internship site to establish your new schedule and let Mrs. Gravatt know what it is. You will be required to complete 80 hours, since you have all your other course work completed. After you have completed 80 hours, any additional hours can be used for Community Service. 

    Below is the TENTATIVE Spring 2024 Internship Schedule. Sites and interns work out their specific schedule with the goal of achieving 6 to 8 hours a week. Students and sites work together to determine holiday and spring break schedule. A total of 80 hours is needed for the class. 

    Tentative (subject to change) internship weeks are:

    Week 1                January 29 to February 4

    Week 2                February 5 to February 11

    Week 3               February 12 to February 18 (February 12 holiday)

    Week 4              February 19 to February 25  (February 19 holiday)
