Project Description

INTERNSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

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!

“I felt incredibly lucky for my internship at Wills Eye Hospital and my time in the OR where, in a single day, I got to see an orbital exoneration, an eyeball enucleation, a conjunctival tumor removal and glaucoma surgery. This was the longest I got to spend in the OR and it was truly amazing.”

WHY DO AN INTERNSHIP

INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE

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.

LIFE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

A historic Ivy League university. Located in the heart of Philadelphia. During the summer, the UPenn campus is filled with high school students, undergraduates, graduate students and professors; giving you the real collegiate experience.

International Experience. About 40% of students come from around the world to join us each summer. Every year we hear how much students enjoy meeting people from all over the country and the world and how it opened their eyes to different parts of the globe.

Trips & Activities. There is always something to do when class is over: movies, tours, events, going to the gym and more. Campus is surrounded by dozens of shops and restaurants that are fun to explore with friends. Trips are offered every Saturday to regional destinations of your choice. And Sundays are for exploring the Philadelphia region.
