Guaranteed College or Career Placement

Internships within SailFuture Academy’s three Social Enterprises help our students develop critical social-emotional, business, and industry-specific skills that make them marketable to our employment partners.

In addition to on-site training, students participate in apprenticeships with local employers to earn field experience and a financial stipend.

“Our student run enterpises are the perfect way to teach students about business in a practical, hands-on and engaging way. Our students work 'behind the scenes' on all of the business fundamentals including: finances, project management, human resources, marketing, business development, and more.”
