Waco ISD, Local Businesses Team Up To Launch Internship Program

Fifteen Waco High students participated in a pilot internship program for the first two weeks of June to gain work experience. This internship pilot program was a collaborative effort between Waco ISD, city of Waco, Waco High Career Academies, National Resource Network, Waco ISD Education Foundation and Prosper Waco. All students who participated in this internship program were immersed in projects at their internship site.
