Becoming a NEXT MOVE Intern Host...
The NEXT MOVE Internship Program of Tacoma Public Schools works with the local business and non-profit community to design meaningful professional positions for high school juniors and seniors. By working alongside workers in a specific industry, students preview their future and gain increased enthusiasm for a career. This valuable experience assists them in acquiring many of the skills and occupational expertise needed in a field of interest. Through the NEXT MOVE Program, interns become more focused on their careers, as well as potential future educational options.
Students typically intern 4-8 hours per week at the site, earning high school credit for the unpaid experience. Participants are assigned a NEXT MOVE Coach who supports both the student and the supervisor throughout the internship.
Representing all career pathways are hundreds of local businesses and organizations that host NEXT MOVE interns. A sampling of past intern hosts can be found here.
