Integrated internships are optional and can be carried out by the students after approval of the School Board. They are translation assignments for international or non-profit organizations such as the Olympic Committee, the French Catholic Committee against Hunger and for Development, etc.
In accordance with the Olympic Charter, the Olympic Games have three working languages: French, English and the vernacular language. Thus, since 1992, our students have been contributing to the multilingualism of the Olympic Games. The programme is funded by the French Ministry of Sports/ the French Ministry for Youth and Community Service, the International Organization of La Francophonie since the Beijing Olympic Games, together with the Olympic Committee of the host country. The programme is intended for 3rd and 4th year students, selected by a joint commission composed of ISIT and the Olympic Committee.

In 2009-2010, ISIT students contributed to the organization and the achievement of the first Youth Olympic Games (YOG), initiated by the Olympic Committee. The YOG, held in Singapore, featured rising young athletes from all over the world, who competed in every "official" Olympic sport.
Integrated internships take place during the school year and cannot exceed 2 weeks. However, special derogations (in-school deferment or year-off agreements) can be granted by the School Board for longer internships.
