Crescenta Valley High School students spent sixth period and time after school on Thursday learning of pre- and post-graduation career and internship opportunities at Teen MOVE.
The Foothills YMCA sponsored the event with support from CVHS PTSA. Representatives from non-profit, government and businesses were on the campus with information on their respective organizations. This year, the Y coordinators invited students from both La Cañada and Verdugo Hills high schools to the event.
Information on internships from Congressman Adam Schiff and State Assemblymember Mike Gatto were available. Gatto stopped by the event to show his support and answer questions not only about internships but college financing as well.
AHEAD (Accelerated Habilitation Education and Development) with Horses was one of the non-profit organizations that offered volunteer opportunities to students. The organization is located in Shadow Hills and for 45 years has provided highly motivated and effective therapy, education and recreation using horses and related experiences to disabled/disadvantaged/at-risk/special-needs children.
