Limited Capacity full

In this session, participants will learn of how internship programs can create a reinforcing paradigm, where kids with lots of opportunity are able to foster a more developed professional network, while historically disenfranchised kids will continue to have less social capital. However, we will show how an internship program that prioritizes student choice, can reduce the opportunity gap and develop social capital for all students. Participants will walk away with ideas and practices that can build a student-driven and engaging internship program, and one that will elevate the career aspirations of all students. Participants will discuss both school design components that support this work as well as practical tools to help implement.
