You will assist in data gathering and data collection for your school, as well as determine the best methods for linking all Kershaw County High School youth-led health clubs together to make your impact even larger. You will assist with other health initiative activities as needed. You will be encouraged to color outside the lines and tap into your creativity!

How long will the internship last? This internship will begin on June 11, 2019 and end on August 17, 2019.

Where will I be working and do I need my own transportation? Our work location will vary.
