The Chamber Intern Program is a great opportunity for Cactus Shadows High School seniors to obtain work experience and be a part of their community. It also provides local businesses the chance to help our youth prepare to be contributing members of the workforce.
Job Shadowing and Internship programs enhance the employability of youth by allowing youth to see what working in a field is really like and providing the real life forum for discussion of various careers and their required skills. Through internships, youth gain greater clarity about academic and vocational options and opportunities.
