beyond high school in the 21st century requires that college students
and young professionals be prepared to meet the challenges of a changing
world. Young people must be prepared to work and contribute to
communities and workplaces where vast amounts of information are
available at the click of a mouse; where cultural perspectives and ideas
vary widely; and where innovation, creativity and critical thinking are
valued and widely sought after.
The CRLS Senior Internship Program offers meaningful work and
learning experiences aligned with students’ academic interests and
achievements, and provides opportunities for 21st century career
exploration. The program comprises two components: an off-site placement
and a classroom seminar.
