San Diego Women in Finance have partnered again with the Clairemont High School’s Academy of Business to help locate internships for their High School Seniors. Can your company sponsor a High School Senior?

The 12​ grade student interns at Clairemont High School’s Academy of Business are
qualified, motivated young people who are required to do field internships as part of their business class credit.

They are looking for companies and organizations who would like to host an intern and make a difference in a young life. Internships are a unique and integral part of the curriculum in Clairemont High School’s Academy of Business.

Each of their senior students get the opportunity to participate in a field internship during their spring semester. Students are released from their afternoon class, three days a week, to apply their skills in a professional setting. Internships are ideally 4-10 afternoon hours per week during the months of March – May. Internships are typically unpaid, although paid internships are always welcome.

Last year we had several companies who sponsored an intern and enjoyed their experience.  Please go to the Clairemont High School’s Academy of Business website http://aobt.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Fast-Facts-AOB-internships-2016.pdf and fill out an application.

E mail us at SanDiegoWIF@gmail.com if you have any further questions. Please let us know if you are able to help.

Join us for this educational and fun evening of conversation with our speaker Mel Burt-Gracik:

The greatest rewards in Mel’s life are found in other people. For her birthday one year she asked everyone in her Facebook cache of friends to let her know how she had been a positive influence in their life. Those stories made up the best birthday present she ever received because influencing others drives her like nothing else. Mel’s business, Flourish, is her primary vehicle for making a difference in the world. A difference shaped by her beliefs that every human wants to do their best, be a part of meaningful work, and have a rich, full life…to Flourish.

Human beings are the greatest asset of any business. Through Flourish, she helps her clients put the human back into human capital in such a way that their engagement soars, bringing their company’s profits along for the ride. She does this through focusing on the strengths of each individual and what their natural talents mean for their preferences in communication, conflict, and motivation. Mel believes in a triple bottom line: flourishing people, flourishing teams, flourishing businesses.

Mel Burt-Gracik has worked in leadership development for 12 years, is four-time Gallup trained, and has coached over 275 individuals surrounding their strengths. In addition to StrengthsFinder, Mel holds certifications in Meyers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i), and is a Board Certified Coach. With Input as her first strength it is no surprise that Mel has a B.A. in Communication, M.A. in Higher Education Administration, and an M.Div.
