Welcome to the Kankakee Area Career Center Internship Program! The program you are entering has been carefully organized to provide you with the best we can offer in on-the-job, real life experience in your chosen career area. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity, and to learn from the experience. At the end of the program, you will be ready to continue on to the next step as you pursue your career goals. The KACC Internship Program offers you yet another way to “prepare for tomorrow” by getting a head start on meeting the demands and challenges of you future careers.
Internship placement is never to be considered as a substitute for the classroom education and training provided by KACC and its Instructors. One of the primary goals of the Internship Program is to place students in an environment where they can learn different techniques and gain knowledge that may not be available in the classroom.
The student’s time at the training station is to occur at the same time as his/her scheduled KACC class. Any request for a time variance must be noted on the “Request for Internship Placement” form, signed by the KACC Instructor, and submitted for verification and approval by the Internship Coordinator and KACC Administration. Health concerns should also be addressed on the Request for Internship Placement form.
The intern must have reliable transportation to and from the Internship site.
Internship is a privilege and an honor for any high school senior. Careful consideration is given into the placing a student who will represent KACC and themselves positively in the community.
