Summer Internship Interest Applications Being Accepted Now

Are you currently an 11th grader?  Are you interested in a summer internship?  An internship is a chance to gain professional work experience. 
SLZUSD sponsors our summer internships for all our Juniors district-wide. Our students are matched with our local business partners. Internship learning experiences are from 6/13/22-7/22/22. These internships will be a valuable opportunity to be considered for University of California admissions and support your career development and work prospects. 
If you have never worked in a professional work environment and need to build your resume, this is a perfect opportunity to do so.
Towards the end of this month, there will be a parent/guardian meeting with all district high school students who sign up to share what parent/guardians and students will expect of the internship. 
Students will be required to attend three workshops between February and March after school on Wednesdays to meet the requirements. They will also receive ten internship hours once completed.
Here are the dates for the workshops at San Lorenzo High (workshops may need to be done via zoom):
