Vaux BPHS LTI Coaching: Your interest in participating in Learning Through Internships (LTI) Coaching is helpful to students as they secure an internship. Each student that will receive coaching is nearing the finish of the Real World Learning process, in which they complete several competencies in preparation for a one- or two-day per week internship. Your job will be to support and advise the student in developing a prospect list of internship sites, following up on leads, preparing for Shadow Days or interviews, and/or being ready for set up meetings. You will be prepared for your coaching session by our Real World Learning staff. Please click the image above to sign up for a 60- or 90-minute session.
