/ Ways to Help
In order to make this an exquisite experience we are in the process of recruiting community members to participate. Here are some options you have to help make a difference in students’ lives this Winterim:
- Teach a mini-course: the subject matter could be related to your profession or to a hobby or personal interest that you are passionate about (3 hours per day for one week)
- Serve as a guest lecturer in another teacher’s class
- Provide an internship or job shadow experience for a student(s) at your workplace
- Volunteer to be a van or bus driver for students to get to off-site venues
Have a question or want to help? Contact Heidi Nykamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A portion of the Winterim program is open only to juniors and seniors: Our Winterim Internships are off-campus “practice” work experiences with real employers so that students can gain first-hand experience with a possible career pathway. An internship placement like this often helps students decide what they want to do after high school graduation–or what they definitely do not want to do! Students can pick on a first-come, first-served basis from one of the many internships we have set up, or they can create a position of their own with a company of their choosing, and then get it approved as an HCHS Winterim internship just for them. Most students stay local; a few end up elsewhere around the country!
