Supervisors & Sites

COFFEE TALKS with our Partnership Coordinator!

It's not easy to mentor a high school student and do your own work, but we are so grateful that you do!  Let's get together to meet other Next Move hosts to share and compare notes, ask questions, and help us improve the Next Move.

We've scheduled a series of Site Supervisor Networking events for this year, both in the morning and the afternoon, to accommodate different schedules. Great for veteran and newer Next Move hosts!

Thank you Jennifer Chernut for hosting these conversations at Tacoma/Pierce County Chamber's Member Services 950 Pacific Avenue, #300

We are always looking for new intern hosts!

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.
