Internships for Career-Readiness  

One of Lakota’s goals is to prepare all students for their future by getting them to be college-, career-, and innovation- ready.

By establishing partnerships with area businesses and organizations, Lakota offers students a number of internship possibilities. These internship programs offer students deeper, richer and more relevant learning experiences which complement the rigor available through its academic courses such Lakota’s STEAM2 (science, technology, engineering, arts/design, mathematics and medical) academic program for grades 1-12.

Local employers, especially in highly technical and specialized professions, traditionally recruit college-level students. Employers have found that this process begins too late and are now beginning their recruitment efforts as early as high school by working with school districts like Lakota to offer student internship programs.

Lakota currently partners with local organizations in business, engineering, medical and non-profit/government fields. View the video below to learn more about what local businesses, students and teachers have to say about the internship program. Plans for expansion into other areas are underway; see the Planning Framework of Job Shadowing & Internships
