The Office of Business Engagement & Strategic Partnerships (BESP) connects LBUSD high school students to a variety of internships through local businesses, organizations and external programs. Our goal is to equitably connect students to internship opportunities that will help develop their networking skills as well as empower and prepare them for life after high school. 

In 2019, BESP made the commitment to eliminate unpaid internships. We have been fortunate to uphold this aspirational goal through the generous support of multiple stakeholders.

Provide an Internship Experience

THANK YOU for providing such rewarding, high-level career experiences for students in LBUSD! 

Please complete an Internship Request Form below and choose, “Other” if you have a custom description.  If there is no direct match, please select the Form most reflective of the scope of work. E.g. If an aerospace engineering company is seeking a social media intern, the “Marketing  & Communications” form is the best fit.

If you have more than one internship where scope and duties vary, please fill out separate forms. If you have multiple openings for the same position, you only need to complete one form.
