February 14, 2017 – Massachusetts Life Sciences’ High School Apprenticeship Challenge

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) is excited to announce the launch of a new internship program for high school students! The High School Apprenticeship Challenge is an innovative program that facilitates and funds paid internship opportunities for high school students. The program subsidizes intern stipends for small businesses and academic researchers to enable them to hire paid interns. Host companies and research institutions will commit to providing a dedicated mentor and hands-on learning experience.

This internship program is modeled on a highly successful Internship Challenge for college students, which has been running year-round for eight years and placed nearly 2,800 students in internships with over 600 companies. Many of these companies are looking forward to hosting high school students in addition to the college students that they hire through our program.

They are now accepting applications from eligible students via their website. Students will sign up via a secure, password-protected, online portal and their information will be removed from the database after eight months (or once selected). Interns must be Massachusetts high school students that are at least 16 years old and currently in their sophomore, junior, or senior year. There is no application deadline, but internships will take place between June and August.

Applications will be made available to prospective host institutions that have completed the required registration form and have been approved by MLSC. Representatives from these organizations will review applications and reach out directly to candidates to inform them about the opportunity. Students are interviewed, hired, and paid directly by the employer. The MLSC provides the online portal for host institutions to connect with students, and reimburses hosts for intern stipends, but does not play any role in candidate selection or the internship itself.

The MLSC will reimburse eligible host institutions for intern stipends of up to $2,880 for students selected through the program (amount is based on a pay rate of $12/hour for 6 weeks).

January 31, 2017 – New England High School Journalism Collaborative

Founded in 1987, the New England High School Journalism Collaborative has introduced hundreds of high school students to the field of journalism, through workshops and programs that let students work directly with professional reporters, photographers and editors from area newspapers. A longtime mission of the Collaborative has been to reach out to inner-city students to introduce them to newspaper careers and to help establish student newspapers in high schools throughout New England. The Collaborative’s key program is a week-long workshop from June 24th to July 1st during which a select group of students gather for a week and produce a laboratory newspaper. This is an all-expense paid program, sponsored in part by Regis College, and in partnership with The Boston Globe. Students are housed at Regis College and work on stories throughout Greater Boston. The workshop was co-founded and directed by the late Carole Remick, who once declared, “Regardless of color, creed, or nationality, this program will continue to serve as a platform for students from urban communities so that all different cultures will be represented in the media.” Students will work with professional reporters, photographers and designers from New England news organizations, including The Globe. They will learn to report, write and edit for a newspaper, and produce multimedia projects for a website. They will be sent out on assignments in the Boston area and will be exposed to working on a deadline to create their own newspaper.

Interested students can apply by filling out an online application at NEHSJC. Students also need to send a hard-copy transcript and teacher recommendation by mail. The deadline for applications is February 17, 2017.


Material should be mailed to:


c/o New England Newspaper and Press Association

In an effort to further serve those students who struggle in certain academic subjects, the Guidance Department is recruiting students with at least a weighted 3.0 GPA who would like to tutor.

This volunteer opportunity may also interest those students who may become eligible for the National Honor Society.

On Tuesday, September 27th, the ASVAB will be administered at Lynn English High School from 8:00 AM until 11:30 AM. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is a FREE comprehensive career exploration and planning program that includes a multiple-aptitude test battery, an interest inventory, and various career planning tools designed to help students explore the world of work. It is administered by the Department of Defense, but Lynn English signed a waiver that prevents the release of student information and results. The waiver also precludes the military from contacting any student because of his/her participation in the program. The Guidance Department believes that the results of the ASVAB will benefit juniors and seniors as they begin their college searches and post-graduate planning.  ASVAB representatives will return to Lynn English a few weeks after the test administration to assist participating juniors and seniors with interpreting their scores.  In order for a junior or senior to participate in this program, a parent’s / guardian’s permission is required. For a permission slip, open click permission-slip or obtain a permission slip from the shelving unit between the two secretaries in Guidance.
