S3 program provides real-world learning experiences to high school students

The Martin County School District's (MCSD) Students Supporting Schools (S3) program provides high school students with an opportunity to gain real-world job experience in a variety of settings.

Internship fields include graphic design, technical support and audio booth operation.  Through their participation in the program, students get a taste of what it's like to be a member of the workforce, including having a supervisor, work schedule and job duties.  

"It was a great program. It got me through the door here for a full-time position after I graduated," said Alec Johnson, S3 alum and current MCSD employee. "It's given me a lot of opportunities."
