Executive Internship Program Preparing Students for Life After High School

APS students are graduating from high school more prepared than ever, thanks to the Executive Internship Program offered through Pickens Technical College.

The APS Executive Internship Program recently hosted the Sponsor Appreciation Dinner and Ceremony to thank individuals and businesses that welcomed interns this semester. Numerous students earned various awards for their community service, including $3,000 in scholarships.

The EIP boasts partnerships with top notch businesses, hospitals, schools, city services, police, veterinary services and many more. Over the course of the semester, interns volunteer 100 hours with their sponsors and attend an additional 60 hours of instructional time in the classroom to learn workplace skills. Sponsors provide students with real-world experiences and opportunities to “test drive” career fields. The EIP is one way students earn credentials that prepare them for college and career success.

Thank you to the incredible community sponsors who support our students.
