1. Costa Internships.
According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 60% of college graduates who participate in an internship receive at least one job offer. But in Manhattan Beach, we start everything a bit early. This year, Mira Costa Teacher Mr. Andrew Caine added a pilot internship class that encourages students to explore career options. Twenty students are currently enrolled, with at least one STEM-related internship at Boeing. Principal Ben Dale hopes to expand the program next year and encourages parents with internship ideas to get involved. “The connection between the school and the community is strengthened when we add ideas from the parent community, and students truly benefit from real-world learning environments,” shares Dr. Dale.
