WCCUSD College & Career Pathways
Terri Waller from WCCUSD College & Career Pathways was our speaker today She told us that this program is 15 years old and is funded through the State. It prepares West County high school students for college and careers. There are six different career pathways: law, engineering, health, media communications, information technology, and performing arts.
They are looking for paid internships for 45 students this summer for five weeks, four days a week. The program underwrites the internships. The students are typically juniors, who are ready to bring their talents and skills to our local businesses and organizations. The interns learn about being supervised, punctuality, and responsibility.
In addition to providing internships, Rotarians can also get involved as public speakers, and supporting Career Days,
