Sponsor an Intern

Practical life experience is a fundamental tenant of a Montessori Education. Our students are interested in exploring future careers including but not limited to:

  • computer coding,
  • engineering,
  • physical and mental health care,
  • academic research,
  • animal husbandry,
  • performance arts,
  • business,
  • law,
  • education,
  • non-profit organization,
  • construction management,
  • and other fields.

We encourage our juniors to shadow professional fields and we require our seniors to engage in a Senior Capstone Experience. While some seniors choose to create an action research project to fulfill this need, others would like to be able to intern during the school day and have a mentor to help guide them in their ability to learn about and impact a specific work field.

If you work at a site that could potentially take on an adolescent intern age 16-18, please email Program Director Danchi Nguyen at dnguyen@phoenixunion.org so your contact info and work place description can be added to our database for potential internship sites. The real world experience from your professional business would be instrumental in guiding the adolescent to their passion in discovering what they want their role in society to be.
