Career Center

Career Center

The center is available to all students that may wish and/or need assistance with exploring internship opportunities and/or paid employment. The Career Center vocational counselor works closely with school guidance counselors and special education staff to develop appropriate opportunities for students and to provide support throughout their placements.

For example, the school has a partnership with Volunteer Services at the Newton-Wellesley Hospital that arranges internships for students who are interested in careers in the healthcare field. L-S also provides transportation and staff supervision four afternoons per week to students who could benefit from exposure to a work environment so that they can develop good work behaviors and skills, grow in self confidence, and explore different career paths. Referrals for this program come from the student’s guidance counselor or special education liaison and generally require a modified academic class schedule.
