The real world starts NOW.
Baxter Academy aims to provide opportunities for our high school students to integrate and collaborate with community organizations within our Portland campus boundaries and beyond. Internship opportunities vary in length and scope: some students have worked on projects with specific deliverables and timeframes, while others have explored professional settings in order to simply gain experience.
For a current list of opportunities, please email our Partnership and Outreach Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Flex friday internships
Each year, Flex Friday expands in scope and reach to involve more community partnerships and real world learning. In the 2016/17 school year, 30 students were out of building every Friday participating in year-long internships.
At Baxter Academy, we believe students learn what matters most by being integrated directly into the work of the world. We collaborate with a robust network of responsive real-world partners who provide mentorship, internships, and opportunities for students to work within—and solve problems for—our community.
If you do work in Maine—whether in a STEM field, or social services, or creative arts—Baxter wants to connect you with our students. We think you’ll soon witness the value of having young minds become acquainted with the most urgent problems you face and with your search for solutions.
