Many of our internships take place in-person or have in-person elements, and we recognize that COVID-19 is likely to be a risk for the foreseeable future. We defer to the mentor organization for their policy on wearing masks, physical distancing, and communication & quarantine protocols should an exposure occur. Interns will then sign a waiver agreement that they agree to follow any protocols provided by their mentor, and understand potential risks. We will continue to adapt to the situation in Oregon and support the safety of students as our top priority.
Now that COVID-19 vaccination is widely available, workplaces, organizations, campuses, and laboratories may require interns to have their vaccines as a prerequisite to an in-person program. Please look to position descriptions for clarity or email ASE@saturdayacademy.org for more information on this policy. Vaccination requirements are subject to change at the hosting organization's discretion.
We will be holding the ASE Midsummer Conference in-person this year, and attendance is required for all interns. Interns will be expected to follow Saturday Academy's safety policies for in-person events, which are updated quarterly.
Please note ASE & partner mentors reserve the right to cancel internships at any time due to COVID concerns, or any other reason.
