Silver Oak Internship Program

Seniors at Silver Oak have the unique opportunity to spend one day per week participating in an internship placement at a local business or organization around the Bay Area.   

Senior Internships serve the dual purpose of providing students with career experience that fits their areas of interest, while also giving back to the local community.

 They also help students develop vital communication and professional skills as well as internalize knowledge and responsibility. When students take lessons they have learned, and use them in a new situation, the experiences becomes more meaningful and purposeful.
