The staff member who recently helped with your Toyota service, parts, rental car or administrative needs at Mossy Toyota in Pacific Beach might have been a student at nearby Mission Bay High School.

Four students from the bayside campus have finished up semester-long internships in the service, parts, administrative and rental car departments, part of the school's internships through the College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) program.

"It was a great experience working with the students," said Dale Snow, Mossy Toyota's fixed operations director. "They were all very enthusiastic.  My staff enjoyed the interaction and showing them the insides of our business."

San Diego Unified's College, Career and Technical Education program's internships are just one of the options available to high school students. The internships, which are after the school day, allow students to work with local businesses in a variety of capacities. They gain valuable experience and get a chance to refine their career goals in a real business.

For more information on the Mission Bay High School program, contact teacher David West at If you'd like to have your business participate in the internship program, call Shawn Loescher, director, College, Career and Technical Education, at (858) 503-1754.
