During the Fall, Winter and Spring terms at New Ventures Charter School, all students spend one day a week participating in our Internship Program.
In their first year, students’ intern in the office of Staten Island elected officials’ and community based organizations.
While in their second year, most students participate in a career- oriented internship selected on the basis of their future goals. As a prerequisite to an internship placement, students are required to complete a Summer Boot Camp. The unique component of the NVCS design is a 6-week experience which lays the groundwork for their future success. Students acquire critical knowledge in areas such as communication skills, “dressing for success” and resume building. Each student completes Boot Camp better prepared for success in his/her internship placement and helps to chart in course towards their graduation.
