Commumity Business Partners

Epic High School students focus on the development of employment and career opportunities.  Through a series of internships, students learn the skills employers are looking for: focus, endurance, quality productions, reliability and working cooperatively with co-workers.

Internships can can be as brief as 2-3 hours per week for 6 to 8 weeks and, later in the process, as lengthy as 5 days a week for up to 20 hours per week.  Throughout the internship, students are accompanied by Job Coaches who support them in every aspect of their internship while on-site.
