Learning to Work

When students begin their education at NQCHS, their Advocate Counselor or Future Focus Counselor will work with them to develop career and employment goals. Their counselor and our Learning to Work Coordinator are available for assistance in finding and keeping part-time employment and planning for post-graduation. 


Paid internships are available through the Learning to Work Program, which will help build important career skills. There are a variety of internships available to students. Students on internships work with children, in offices, at cultural institutions, with animals, and with the elderly. Typically, a paid internship is 10 hours per week and takes place after school and/or on the weekends.

If students are interested in an internship, they should contact Mantovani Bigot our LTW Coordinator to discuss the following:
    • Interest and available positions 
    • Review LTW guidelines 
    • Submit applications for working papers and employment 
    • Schedule an interview
