30+ Indianapolis Companies Support Program in 2021-2022

The Firehawks Internships and Real-World Experiences (FIRE) student internship program creates unmatched college and career readiness opportunities for Victory College Prep students starting in their junior year of high school.

On select Fridays during the academic year, approximately 15 dates over 10 months, students report to program partner workplaces to job shadow, perform assigned tasks, and interact with mentors. Students are graded on their workplace performance with the help of assessments completed by partner companies, and successful program participation is a high school graduation requirement. 

Indianapolis employers representing a wide range of sectors actively participate in the program with an annual average of nearly 35 partners providing the spots needed for students, which can range from 100 to 125 in a given academic year based on class sizes.
