Internship Program

During DLA's 11th-grade internships, each intern completes a minimum of four hours with their mentor every Tuesday and Thursday.  The internships occur off-campus at the workplace of the mentor, and the intern’s work hours are determined by the professional mentor.

We believe that education is everyone’s business. Opportunities for learning are everywhere - not just inside classrooms. Research tells us that we learn best when we are personally motivated; when we have a passion for what we are doing, knowledge unfolds and evolves naturally.  Internship mentors give each scholar the opportunity to learn from an adult with a similar interest.  The focus on real work in professional settings gives the scholars context and depth for their learning.  Through genuine relationships, mentors teach scholars a work ethic and model what it means to be an adult member of our community.
