Internship Program

The IACS Internship program aims to give students an opportunity to explore career options while gaining workplace skills regardless of what career a student chooses to pursue.  Often students are placed in a workplace where high school students usually wouldn’t be able to secure on their own. Internships have opened up job opportunities, as well as make a great addition to a college or job application.

We currently partner with over 50 organizations and have a variety of opportunities to offer IACS upperclassmen.

IACS 11th and 12th graders have the option of participating in the IACS Internship program as an extracurricular on Wednesday’ afternoons from 1-5pm, or on both Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1-3pm. Students are required to provide their own transportation.

Class of 2017 graduate, Caitlin Pichette, interviewed and documented some of her fellow classmates and their mentors at their internship sites. Click on the link above to view the documentaries.

    Intern Testimonials:

    “When I first started my internship I thought that I was going to go to college to be an engineer in a recording studio. I learned while participating in the internship that I liked the business aspect of the recording studio more than the engineering. I’m very grateful that I was able to figure that out sooner rather than later.”

    “My experience at LGH is one of the most educational and valuable experiences I have had in my high school career. Personally, my experience at LGH has truly solidified the fact that becoming a neurosurgeon is something I want to pursue in my future. It’s taught me how a hospital works on a day to day basis and I especially think this experience has given me an advantage because I have more knowledge about hospitals and surgery.”

    “My two years of internships at IACS have helped me develop the interpersonal and professional skills necessary to succeed in the workplace. I was able to blend into the normal workday of business and learn what it means to support a nonprofit – and how tiring that can be! My internship experience led to further volunteer and job opportunities at both the Discovery Museums and the Chelmsford Center for the Arts.”
