JSHS Internship Profile - Emily ArndtThe Wyomissing Area Senior High School Internship Program is part of an initiative from the Pennsylvania Department of Education called Pennsylvania Career Readiness. 

The goals of the Internship Program, which has been in development for the last year, are to provide students with the opportunity for career exploration and hands-on field experience before choosing a career or postsecondary area of concentration; give interns exposure to the professional expectations of the “working world”; connect academic applications to practical skills; and meaningfully extend every academic department’s existing curriculum. 

For the 2019 spring session, ten student interns are working with mentors in internal placements throughout the school district.  As teacher and Internship Coordinator Peter Beck explains, "This pilot year will provide valuable data and feedback to enhance the experience for next year’s interns." 

This week’s featured Internship focuses on Senior Emily Arndt who is interested in working in a small-office setting after graduation. She chose to intern in the guidance office because she felt she could gain valuable experience from guidance secretary Mrs. Melissa Kassl-Lupold and the Wyomissing Area Senior High School guidance counselors.
