Internships in San Diego for High School Students?

I’m a junior living near San Diego and I'm looking for internships opportunities around here. Anybody know something or have experience with internships for high schoolers in this area?

Hello! It's wonderful that you're taking the initiative to seek out internship opportunities as a high school junior. San Diego has a wealth of industries, and that means many potential internships for eager students like you.

One of the first steps you should take is to reach out to your school's career center or guidance office, as they usually have a list of local internships or can help you with reaching out to businesses. Another great way to find internships is to leverage your own network. Ask family, friends, and teachers if they're aware of any opportunities, and don't overlook the value of contacting local businesses in fields that interest you directly to inquire about internship opportunities. Many companies are open to the idea even if they don't have formal programs, particularly if you present yourself well and articulate how the internship would be mutually beneficial.

Lastly, look for organizations that specialize in your areas of interest, as they can sometimes offer internships or work-study programs for high school students. Best of luck with your internship search!
