|Interns at the Boys and Girls Club, above, and AXA.|
The 24 students worked at 18 companies, including as the Omni Hotel, Boys and Girls Club and AXA, gaining valuable experience during their 120 hours of work.
The now-seniors are participating in a program that integrates academic and career technical education, business partnerships, mentoring and internships. It is funded through a California Partnership Academy grant through the state Department of Education.
The Omni Hotel hosted a reception for the students, their parents/guardians, internship hosts and academy supporters recently to salute the students’ achievements and thank their fellow hosts for their contributions to San Diego’s schools.
