This gateway to Community-Based Transformational Learning (CBTL) places students in work-like environments for an extended period of time to practice work related skills and polish their professional disposition. Above all else, successful apprenticeship/internship programs combine on the job training in meaningful, real-world settings with relevant, supplemental instruction. The relationship between the student and the organization should be mutually beneficial in the sense that the student works with a skilled worker to gain career specific "know how" and in turn becomes an important part of the establishment.
There are several offices and departments at UNF that can assist you in developing and implementing specific aspects of your academic internship program.
