York Technical College Summer Externship for Educators

York Technical College Summer Externship for Educators is a unique externship for teachers only. The externship is offered every summer for educators to help them stay current with career opportunities for students.

The externship is offered by York Technical College in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Educators who are accepted into the program spend ten days with a local employer and take that experience back to the classroom. This enables students to learn what careers are available, and how much education and training they will need to enter that career field.
