OUSD Looking for the offering of Unpaid Internships

From Oakland Unified School District's College and Career Readiness Office comes a request for offering unpaid internships to local students. LINKED HERE is the document "Information for Intern Supervisors and Organizations" from the Academy Directors:

Dear Community Business Leaders,

The College and Career Readiness Office has recognized you as a business partner who has expressed interest in supporting Oakland Unified School District students. 

Do you have a work project that you never seem to get to? These high school students can help! The OUSD Mandela Law and Public Service Academy is looking for host sites to place 11th grade students in unpaid internships this school year.  The purpose of the internship is to give students first-hand experience at a work site where they interact with professionals in a law or public service career field. With your guidance they can complete that work project and contribute to your organization while gaining invaluable real world experience.

The internship would entail:
  • January-June 2013, 6 month commitment
  • Student spends 2-4 hours per week at the internship host site
  • Student completes a pre-assigned work project for your organization 
  • You provide orientation to the workplace, sign off on attendance logs and return regular feedback forms by email
  • You write a letter of recommendation at the conclusion of the internship if the intern's work is commendable
  • Mandela provides an adult contact should questions or difficult situations arise
  • Mandela provides feedback tools and attendance logs
Students are available to intern most days after school. Host site supervisors and interns will arrange specific work times.
Please contact Patricia or Ellen if you are interested in linking your industry expertise to classroom learning.
