Melanie, a student in the Garden Grove Unified School District, learned the roles in sales, client management and project presentation in the engineering industry during her internship at Envise, a total building solutions company based in Garden Grove.

Melanie said her internship experience will prove helpful in her decision to choose a career. And ultimately, that’s the goal of the internship that was set up in partnership with OC Pathways.

“We want kids to know what’s available, what options they have, and things they might not be introduced to otherwise,” said Jenny Lee, senior account consultant at Envise.

OC Pathways, led by OCDE, now includes more than 2,000 business partners, community colleges and Orange County school districts.
