InspirED Futures Internship Program
Decatur Public Schools and its business and industry partners recognize the need for our high school students to be provided meaningful real life work experiences in the real world prior to high school graduation.
The goal of the internship is to provide the students with the opportunity to increase their problem-solving skills. Each participating partner presents their studen interns with a real life problem/project that challenges their business. The student interns are tasked with brainstorming and researching possible solutions. While the scope of the internship is up to the business, the expectation from the district to the businesses is that each of the pojects must have the students fully engaged and involed in hands-on, meaningful experiences.
