“Summer vacation” usually means time for teachers to sort through materials, work on lesson plans, prepare for the upcoming school year, or devote time to professional development.

Professional development can be costly and teachers most likely must pay out of pocket for these opportunities.  The HSTA Summer Internship Program supports and enhances the professional roles of teachers by providing teachers with an orientation of today’s 21st century workforce and the essential skills/competencies that students will need to possess in order to be successful in college, workplace and citizenship in this ever-evolving 21st century.  This program is possible at an affordable tuition due to the support of our community partners.

Specific objectives of the course:

      * Expose teachers to workforce development challenges

      * Develop lessons that promote 21st century competencies through Hawaii’s General Learner Outcomes

      * Enhance teachers’ understanding of current workplace challenges and competencies so that
        students can be successful

      * Promote a strong relationship between the education and business community in Hawaii so all stakeholders
        can work together to promote student success
