Internships

Internships expand on what the Raisbeck Aviation High School students learn at RAHS. Students experience the entire internship process, from creating a resume, applying and interviewing for the internship, to working on real world projects alongside professionals, to reflecting on what they learned at the internship.

We believe high school is the right age to inspire our future aerospace/aviation/STEM workforce and that internships are the key.

Full Internships

Internships provide an in depth experience of 90-180 hours. They give the student the most real world experience, boost the student’s resume and college application and provide an introduction to future employees. In addition, Raisbeck Aviation High School receives funding from the state to acknowledge full internships, which helps support the program.

Job Shadows

Create an experience of 20-90 hours for one or more students, either at the same time, or staggered schedules. Hours can be flexible and should meet your needs as well as the student’s schedule.

Extended Job Shadow/Mini Internships

Create an experience of 20-90 hours for one or more students, either at the same time, or staggered schedules. Hours can be flexible and should meet your needs as well as the student’s schedule.
