Three Rivers is committed to creating excellent programs that support youth in all areas of their educational development. One innovative program we have launched district wide is our Youth Internship Program. Juniors and Seniors from TRSD high schools have the opportunity to spend several hours per week for one school semester as an intern learning about a career area that they may pursue after graduation. By giving youth the tools to investigate potential careers before they leave high school we empower them to make intelligent decisions regarding their post-secondary education plans. Students also gain foundational workplace skills, and contacts and mentors in the community to help encourage them as they make the transition from student to young adult. Please contact Gene Merrill (coordinator) for further information. 541-592-2116 X3528
