Project Interface Summer Internship Program

  • What is Project Interface?

    Project Interface is a unique, unpaid summer internship opportunity that places students in a career area of their interest. The program is offered to qualified Rockwood juniors in the summer leading into their senior year of high school. 

    • Project Interface provides students with career exploration opportunities while allowing them to gain practical, real-world experience in a field of interest.
    • Students are partnered with a business professional in the student's area of interest. Students then complete a custom-designed project developed by Project Interface Program Managers with input from the business partner. The project design is written to benefit both the student and the business partner.
    • Successful students receive 1/2 of a CTE credit after documenting a minimum of 75 hours on their projects. The program includes student observation, research, meetings and interviews at the business site. The project culminates in a presentation by the students to the business team and Rockwood staff.
