RHS Externship Program

The Ridgewood High School Externship program is organized by the Ridgewood High School Alumni Association (RHSAA) in partnership with RHS. This program creates an opportunity for RHS seniors to connect with alumni and parents, explore career opportunities, and extend learning beyond school boundaries.

Selected alumni and parents of alumni in private enterprise or public service will invite interested students to participate in informative, interactive Zoom sessions.

The RHS Externship program is an opportunity for students to get a first-hand view of a professional environment, a typical workday, and real-life challenges.
