Pentacle’s Career Development programs cultivate the next generation of leaders
High School Internship Program
Pentacle’s High School Internship Program seeks high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are self-motivated and interested in learning skills utilized by for-profit and nonprofit organizations.
In an effort to address the widespread impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pentacle has re-designed our High School Internship Program to better reflect the needs of today’s emerging leaders. For high school students looking to supplement their academic education with real-life business skills or may need help figuring out their next steps amid this period of global instability, Pentacle’s High School Internship Program provides hands-on work experience, career development, and mentorship during the 8-week program session.
Selected interns are paired with a participating small business (for-profit or nonprofit entities) that shares their interests and goals. Interns have the opportunity to build their hard skill sets, learn from their peers, and meet industry leaders at weekly professional development seminars led by Pentacle staff members and visiting professionals. The curriculum will be relevant for students whose plans include college as well as those who are not sure college is the right choice for them.
