Career Exploration Opportunities for Students -- Summer 2020
Check out some of the ways Mounds View and Irondale High School students explored different career pathways during the summer months.
Approximately 30 seniors from Irondale and Mounds View High Schools will participate in a year-long, 20 hour per week paid internship through Genesys Works. Students will be placed in business or IT related internships at major corporations, including Land O'Lakes, Medtronic and Deluxe Corporations. Students spent the summer participating in an 8 week training session to better prepare them for their internships. Mounds View Schools has been partnering with Genesys Works for more than five years.
Students from Irondale High School were busy this summer participating in the MN Trades Academy (MTA), a paid summer construction internship experience for Twin Cities area high school youth. The goal is to help youth prepare for adulthood through life-long learning, skill development, and access to good jobs with good benefits in the construction industry. Construction Careers Foundation, a Mounds View Schools partner, coordinates the program.
