Career Club's First Health Career Team Project

Career Club hosted the first Health Career Team for 2012 internships this summer with great success. Five out of six original team members successfully completed 75-135 hours of internship hours through informational interviews, career development workshops and the development of a “Keeping Children Safe at Home” online project.

This project was developed from Legacy Hospital’s “Keeping Children Safe” guidelines posted on their website. The Health Career Team expanded on this list of guidelines to create a Prezi Presentation complete with pictures and their own added recommendations from detailed research on the project. Interested in health careers and working with children, this project provided a perfect opportunity for the teens to explore and combine their interests.

SIU can host internships for determined teens who want to succeed in life. Our Health Career Team members are all preparing college and scholarship applications as their next step for success thanks to your investment in them and their futures!
