About DelEX

Program Overview

The Delbarton Externship Program (“DelEX”) creates an opportunity for rising seniors to connect with alumni and parents, explore career opportunities, and extend learning beyond school boundaries.

  • This year, hosts and students will have the option to choose in-person or virtual sessions.
  • Alumni and parents of alumni in private enterprise or public service will invite interested students to their places of business or participate in informative, interactive Zoom sessions.
  • DelEX is an opportunity for students to get a first-hand view of a professional environment, a typical workday, and real-life challenges.
