Residential students are required to find an internship in the local community while attending Wayfinder Schools. Upon enrollment, students receive a two-week grace period to obtain a work placement off campus. During this time, students complete trainings in resume writing, interview skills, and professionalism. Typical work schedules are from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. Students are encouraged to seek apprenticeship placements that coincide with their personal interests, strengths, and skills. Students may occasionally receive a modest stipend from their work placement site. More importantly, they receive invaluable professional experience which they can use in finding future work.
