Internships for Career Readiness
Propel Andrew Street High School offers our seniors internship opportunities in various industries and institutions throughout Pittsburgh. ASHS believes in the importance of students gaining real world experience while they are still in high school. The 21st century workplace is a much more fluid and diverse workplace than the one preceding it. This requires experience and exposure to the many options available. Below are a list of our current internship opportunities. Check back for updates as new internships will be added to this list.
Broadcast Journalism at Point Park University
The goal of this internship is to introduce students to broadcast careers, as well as specific formats and style. Students will meet broadcast professionals and visit a radio station, TV station and production house. The students will also get an opportunity to learn what it takes to be on-air talent or work behind the scenes as a writer, producer, or editor.
Leadership at Point Park University
Many researchers believe that leadership is something that can be learned, taught and nurtured. In order to effectively cultivate the leadership potential of the young leaders engaged in this apprenticeship program, it will embrace James Kouze’s and Barry Posner’s “The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” to structure the curriculum. The session will conclude with a leadership program or project developed by the students and the instructors.
Robotics at Carnegie Science Center
Pittsburgh has been called the robotics capital of America. Students will learn about the basics of the science of robotics in the largest robotics exhibit in the U.S., meet with professionals in the field, and then see if they have what it takes to design, program, and deploy robots of their own.
Zoo Animal Care at PPG Zoo and Aquarium
Students will learn about husbandry and veterinary practices, as well as handling techniques for a variety of animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Each session will include visits with various professionals in their work locations throughout the zoo.
Propel Andrew Street High School is pleased to offer our Constitutional Law and Justice students the opportunity to compete in regional and national Moot Court competitions.
“In the fall of 1999, Professor Jamin Raskin of American University Washington College of Law launched the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project named in honor of the late United States Supreme Court Justices Thurgood Marshall and William J. Brennan, Jr. This project, founded with the enthusiastic support of Mrs. Cissy Marshall and the late Mrs. Mary Brennan, was designed to mobilize talented second- and third-year law students, as well as LLM students, to teach courses on constitutional law and juvenile justice in public high schools in the District of Columbia and Maryland. The national program is headquartered at the Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C., and the program has expanded to licensed chapters in law schools across the country.
This movement for constitutional literacy is rooted in the belief that students will profit for a lifetime from learning the system of rights and responsibilities under the U.S. Constitution. Many citizens do not participate and feel disengaged from politics. The Marshall-Brennan Fellows work with teachers, administrators and lawyers to teach students their rights as citizens, the strategic benefits of voting, how lawmaking occurs and other fundamental constitutional processes.”
For more information regarding the Moot Court program please email Ms. Kristy Hilbert.
Initiated by students on 2009, the Andrew St. beekeeping program is one of only few such high school programs in the country. Students don’t just learn about beekeeping, they become beekeepers – tending to the hives, harvesting honey, making other hive-based products, and completing a wide range of bee-related projects and research. Honey sales have made the beekeeping program financially self-sustaining since it began, and in 2013 we received the Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence. For more information regarding the Beekeeping program email Mr. Brandon Keat.
