NExT Internship Program

Opportunities for exploring your interests and discovering what's NExT.

Program Overview

Giving students multiple opportunities to connect and engage with the local community is a core tenet of the Pacific Ridge mission. These interactions offer our students ways to practice skills they learn in the classroom that help prepare them for success in our rapidly changing world. Through academic internships and summer enrichment programs, NExT connects high school students with opportunities to engage with local businesses, start building a network of professional connections, and practice the skills they need to succeed in college and beyond.
