Quality internships need much more than a journal and an attendance sheet.
Today’s quality internships must have
Robust curriculum — Learning plans with site-based projects and activities
Reflection and Practice — An integrated seminar where students reflect on their learning and build skills and competencies critical for today’s world
Opportunity for Feedback and Mentoring — One-on-one relationships with adult mentors
Authentic Assessment — Portfolios, presentations and exhibitions where learning can be evaluated
Sponsor Support — Guidelines to help the sponsoring organization provide a rewarding experience for the intern and build a partnership with the school or college
Internship Quest materials for the student intern, the school, and the sponsoring organization can provide a foundation for a cost-effective program that can be easily implemented and sustained from year-to-year.
