Volunteering and Internships


As a school, it is our goal to have every child volunteer in their community.  Our youngest students may find time to help a neighbor pick weeds, clean up parks, or read to a smaller child.  Older students will support local opportunities to give back.  All students that participate will keep a portfolio of activities, descriptions and photos.  By the end of high school, the Sutter Peak student will have a wide variety of experiences to draw from.

The Sutter Peak Charter Academy Internship program is open to all of our High School Students if you should be interested.  Our program will be available for you to enhance your resume, boost your marketability, and teach basic responsibilities of real-life jobs.  As we approach local businesses, we would like to know where your interests lie as you begin to think about life beyond high school and college.

The goal of the program is to provide students with hands-on experience in a field of interest and to help them narrow-in on their abilities, form opinions about future jobs, and explore options for college and work pursuits while providing them with a valuable educational experience. Students will be matched to unpaid internship opportunities based upon their career interests and abilities with the goal of making decisions about college and future career searches.  The Sutter Peak staff will assist students in connecting them with an employer and setting up the internship.

Please contact your teacher to plan an individualized internship opportunity.
