INTERNSHIPSThe Marin County School-to-Career Partnership is a collaborative effort between school districts, businesses, public agencies, and non-profit organizations in Marin County.
The Partnership works as the “bridge” between the employer community of Marin and the schools. Businesses and organizations are engaged to provide a wide range of opportunities to students and teachers including internships, job shadows, and school presentations.
Internships are offered to high school students during the school year and in the summer. Interested students need to go to the College/ Career Center and fill out an application. A School-to-Career staff member, the Business and Education Liaison who is assigned to the Tamalpais Union High School District’s schools, will coordinate the request and contact the student directly.
One of the largest School-to-Career high school programs is the Summer Internship Program. Each summer, students participate in a 6–8 week internship that has been offered by over 140 organizations and businesses throughout Marin County. Employers are recruited to participate in creating true internship and mentoring opportunities for students. Companies like Autodesk, Kaiser Permanente, Industrial Light and Magic, Marin General Hospital, and Mattell offer opportunities. Students are required to attend an educational component and will receive high school credit for their participation.FOR MORE INFORMATION, see the Marin County School-to-Career websiteMarin County School to CareerGreg Davisongdavison@tamdistrict.org415-458-3484 or 415-945-1020
