Student Internship Opportunities

Currently, many Fresno Unified CTE courses in different pathways and programs offer paid and unpaid internship opportunities to qualifying students.

Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, courses will be offered at high schools across Fresno Unified, aligned with the different industry sectors, that are designed to give students an opportunity to participate in paid and unpaid internships during the school day. Students will earn up to 20 elective credits for successful completion of the course and will learn valuable employability skills with a designated teacher, along with industry-specific experience while working with industry professionals at work sites.

If you are interested in an internship, contact your school site Job Developer, Counselor, or CTE teacher for more information.
