Thank you for supporting the
VCP Firehawks Internship & Real World Experience (FIRE) Program.

The FIRE program provides VCP high school seniors and juniors experiences in professional settings to grow college readiness and employability skills. These workplace experiences help students earn college credits, prove post-secondary competencies, and demonstrate employability skills in alignment with state of Indiana education requirements.

Most importantly, the program ensures our students can meet our VCP graduate standards, which include a 100% college acceptance rate, an 80% college matriculation rate, and a 60% rate of associate’s or bachelor’s degree attainment for all VCP alumni.

Your new partner recommendation helps sustain the program by connecting the school with the 150+ partners required to facilitate the program each academic year.
