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.
