In 2019, Channel Albany  partnered with the Abrookin Career and Technical Center (ACTC), part of Albany High School, and became an internship site for students interested in television production.  High school students participating in the Career Exploration Internship Program (CEIP) are under the supervision of a Work Based Learning teacher. They dedicate a minimum of thirty field hours at a work site of in an area they may be passionate about and earn a half credit toward graduation.

On May 20, 2019, the ACTC recognized community partners, outstanding students in Career and Technical (CTE) programs and served as a “signing day” for students committed to employers throughout the Capital Region.  See Times Union Link for more specifics:

Channel Albany was awarded a certificate of thanks along with the other internship sites but was singled out as “Rookie of the Year!” Internship mentor, Kirk Daniels, Channel Albany’s Studio Coordinator, accepted the plaque from ACTC House Principal Andrea Marques.

Thank you. We are thrilled! Sharing some pictures:
