An Inside Look at Professional Life
Internships are glimpses into possible career paths — and maybe even your own professional future! JKCP internships place you within your field of choice, with a mentor who gives you a hands-on, three-week look at what they do — a priceless opportunity to see a career in action. Walk away from your internship with a better understanding of industry realities as well as your own interest.
There’s no better way to understand a profession than by actually doing it, which is exactly what a summer internship offers: a chance to do meaningful work in the field of your choice. Why spend four years in college studying for a career you’ve never experienced? This is a fantastic opportunity to hone your interests and expand your professional network earlier than most!
This program has a rolling admissions timeline. We recommend applying as soon as possible.
Residential Tuition: $5,990

WHY DO AN INTERNSHIP
It’s hard to put into just a few words why this is such a valuable opportunity for you as a high school student. This is a unique opportunity to network with professionals, get some work experience and glimpse into an industry which you are considering for college and possibly beyond. If you read any of our interns’ testimonials, you will see that these experiences often impact their future decisions, ignite their passion for a particular field, direct their college choices and will definitely make a significant impression on their lives.
