Each school year, a highlight for seniors in the Valencia High School (VHS) Val Tech program is the 150-hour internship. Students gain real-world experience using technology they have learned in the classroom and discover the ins and outs of office dynamics and business-place expectations. Over eighty Tigers are working on their internships this year. Some of the intern host/partners are Boeing, UCI, CSUF, PYLUSD, and many local businesses.
The six students pictured (L-R) completed their summertime internships at Boeing in Huntington Beach: Christy Yee, Caroline Bostwick, Sharon Wang, Bryce Turcaz, Tyler Sanders, and Nathan Garcia. Also pictured with the students is the Val Tech summer internship advisor, Mrs. Lisa Guest.
During their internships at Boeing, the students gain hands-on experience as they work alongside a Boeing employee who serves as their mentor, exposing them to opportunities within the facility and industry. Students intern in a variety of areas, including Engineering, Business, and IT.
Keep up the good work, Tigers!
