How To Use This Site 

The Student Opportunities page is a collection of internships, enrichment programs, events and additional opportunities that students can apply to and participate in outside of school time. 
Suggested Ways to Use the Page: 
  1. Highlight a few opportunities that are of interest to your students and encourage students to apply or attend. You can select opportunities based on the location or type of experience. 
  2.  Target a group of students to apply for specific opportunities based on their interest areas. For example, working with students who are interested in writing to apply for opportunities that are writing contests or writing internships. 
  3.  Host application drop-in hours for students to get support in applying for opportunities. This ensures that students are completing all parts of the application and have a greater chance of being selected for the program. 

If you need additional support or guidance in preparing students for WBL opportunities, please see the resources section below or contact Jackie McKinney at
