2015 Stacy Nishina Business Internship Program
HSTA members are on the job at Hawaiian Electric as part of the Stacy Nishina Business Internship program. This week, teachers learned about Hawaiian Electric inside and out. They found out how the Customer Contact Center works and toured the Waiau Power Plant to learn about power generation.
This summer’s Stacy Nishina Business Internship program is possible in part due to an NEA Great Public Schools Grant (GPS). HSTA is using the GPS Fund Grant to continue to offer our business internship program to members this summer. In 2010, HSTA started a program that connected teachers with local businesses so that teachers could help students become college and career ready. To accomplish this, HSTA partnered with the Hawaii Business Roundtable (HiBR) and Hawaii Children’s Foundation (HCF). The Stacy Nishina Teacher Internship Program (TIP) is a successful partnership with the HiBR and HCF, giving teachers real-world business experience and culminating in the creation of lesson plans based on the experiences teachers had as an intern with a local business.
