Senior Experience

The Senior Experience program at Bishop Hendricken is designed to afford all seniors an opportunity to obtain volunteer work placement in the community for ten days in the spring of their senior year of high school.  The intent of the program is to provide exposure to various career paths or professions that might be of interest to the student.

Over the years, Hendricken seniors have been placed in such notable organizations as Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Raytheon Corporation, the Rhode Island State House, the Community Food Bank, numerous doctors’ and lawyers’ offices, colleges and universities, as well as many schools, parish, and community centers. This program offers graduating seniors a first-hand, close-up view of “life after college,” and has been an integral part of the Hendricken experience for many decades.

2020 Senior Experience

The Senior Experience program runs this year on ten Mondays, beginning on Monday, March 9, 2020 and ending on Monday, May 18, 2020Please note: There is no Senior Experience on Monday, April 13, 2020 during the April vacation week.

Students are expected to provide a minimum of six hours of work at their placement each week.  There can be no compensation for the work performed. The program is mandatory for all seniors, and successful completion is a graduation requirement for Bishop Hendricken High School.

The Senior Experience Program days count as school days for seniors and therefore missing any days of the program will require making up the day missed on weekends, during the April vacation week, or after normal school hours.

Each student must provide the name, address, phone number, and email address for their placement, along with the name of a specific contact person.
