The internships are a stipend position. It is estimated that an internship should involve a total of 40-50 hours per school year.  It should not take the place of volunteer activities done by clubs, etc.  Upon completion of the program, interns will receive a stipend of $500. 

  • Interns will be selected by completing a short essay on what they bring to the internship and submitting it to the director sponsoring the internship.   
  • Interns will have a series of short, weekly meetings with their director.  The purpose of these meetings (which can be 15-30 minutes long) is to brainstorm on projects. A project that fits will have the following characteristics:
    • A project of value to Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School – not busy work- but also a project that doesn’t have a tight deadline. 
    • A project that can realistically be completed within the timeframe of the internship.
  • Each application should include 2-3 simple goals for the internship – what the student wants to get out of the experience. 
  • The intern will keep track of her hours and submit to the director monthly.
