  • Employment Internship Sites Needed For NHS Transition Program

    The Newtown High School Transition Program is in need of student employment internship sites for the 2013-2014 school year. 

    The program allows students with disabilities to learn vocational skills while earning school credit.  Employers commit to having an unpaid student intern two days per week, for a total of six hours, during one semester. 

    Onsite support (job coaching) for the student will be provided when necessary.
