Get a “look inside” a variety of jobs or college majors through the FindMino career app. Then connect with local professionals through the Coffee & Careers and Summer Work Internship programs.
Coffee & Careers
As part of the Career Exploration Initiative (CEI), BYS has partnered with one of our highly valued community partners, Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island, and a new, locally-based social enterprise, FindMino, to launch Coffee & Careers, where current employers, business owners, and working and retired professionals meet virtually with a young person for a casual conversation about a specific field of interest.
FindMino makes it fun and easy for young people to ponder their future by exploring a wide variety of majors and careers.
Summer Work Internships
Need a job? Want to earn some extra cash for the summer? Since 1982, our Jobs Board has been an island institution. Through the Career Exploration Initiative, students can apply for summer work internships, networking opportunities and job shadows.
In addition to work and training, interested summer interns may also participate in the Design Your Life workshop for a chance to explore future career possibilities and acquire creative problem-solving tools.
