CRLS Senior Internship Program
Spring Semester (Feb - Mid-May 2017) | Monday - Friday | 12:30 - 2:30PM | (Except on alternating Fridays when students stay in school for the Good Work Internship Seminar)
Do you know of someone that is interested in supervising a CRLS Intern? The aim of the program is to build mutually beneficial partnerships with area organizations. Students will be available to work with your organization for two hours per day throughout a semester in exchange for opportunities to apply and strengthen their understanding and knowledge; to contribute to projects in authentic ways; and to explore career fields of interest. I am particularly committed to finding placements where students can explore issues of ethics and justice in the professions. I would love the opportunity to speak with you concerning possibilities for partnership. Students who have applied for the program have expressed interest in the following areas. Might you be able to help out?

  • Architecture
  • Art Conservation
  • Art Therapy
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Programming
  • Early Education Teacher
  • Hotel Management
  • Law/justice
  • Media and Communications
  • Nursing
  • Pastry Chef
  • Sports Management/Business Management
Please email me at if you would like to talk about this more. Thank you.

Food Pantry

CRLS food pantry needs your help!
Last year CRLS opened a food pantry in response to the growing need of its most vulnerable students. For many students their main source of nutrition is the school food service program. The food pantry helps supplement evening and weekend meals. It is called the Falcon's Market and currently services 50 students a week.

During the Fall Musical STARS students will be accepting donations in the Arts building Lobby. Please consider bringing a bag of non-perishable items such as shelf-stable milk(boxed),cereal, tuna fish, rice, cooking oil, pasta, dried beans, or peanut butter.

The Fall Musical, In the Heights is running: Nov. 11,12,18,19 @ 7PM & Nov. 20 @2PM. For more information regarding the food pantry contact Greta Hardina, CRLS Family Liaison.
