What to expect from a banking internship as a high school rising sophomore.

I have been into the whole finance/banking thing since 7th grade and decided that I wanted to become an investment banker. Recently as a freshman in high school, I have acquired a summer internship at a small boutique through connections. I will be working 5-6 hours Monday-Thursday but the problem is that I don't know what to expect. I don't think that they would trust a high school student with doing stuff that interns who are in college do. And would this help on college apps?

FACTS, non target here with middling GPA (engineering tho) but Ive gotten so many offers just because once I get in front of someone I sell myself so well that they are idiots to not hire me. The only exception is BB IB, but I've had success with BB S&T, MBB, and MF REPE
