Internship

Mobile County Public Schools is in the planning stages of its 2021 Summer Internship Program.
Another large step in our plan is to offer our most committed students the opportunity to experience the adult work force before they graduate. Students who earn a summer internship will receive insight into the world of work which will further prepare them for post graduate success.
Last year, we were unable to place interns with our valued Mobile County area business partners across all industries, due to the pandemic. But we are hoping, with your support, to restart our summer internship program for the 2021 Summer Internship Program, allowing more students to gain valuable work experience in their fields of interest.
We will be hosting a meeting on Wednesday, January 26th at 9:00 a.m. virtually using the following link for any business interested in obtaining more information about our program.
