/ Winterim Internships

Our Winterim Internships are off-campus “practice” work experiences with real employers so that HC juniors and seniors 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!

Because of social restrictions due to COVID, Winterim and its internships are postponed until January 2022. However, if you have any questions that you can’t find answered below, feel free to contact Greg Schemper, Internship Director, at gschemper@hollandchristian.org. If you’d like to see examples of internships from past years, scroll down. And if you’d like to read what students thought about their internships, here’s an article about the experience.
