Apprenticeships are a way to learn a trade or occupation — from a professional in that field — by doing the job while earning a salary.
An internship in Milwaukee Public Schools is a situation in which a high school student works for an employer for a specific period of time to learn about a particular industry or occupation. Activities undertaken by interns may include
- special projects,
- a sample of tasks from different jobs, or
- tasks from one specific job.
Internships provide opportunities for students to obtain direct exposure to different careers in a structured, paid or unpaid work setting. Learn more about an MPS internship here.
If you are interested in working in public service, such as being a police officer, firefighter, or postal carrier, you should consider a public-service training program. This can be the first step to a career in one of these services and a way to start earning a salary right out of high school. To learn more about each, click on the links below:
