The Boys & Girls Club of Malibu provided summer internships to local teens for the fifth year. The internship and job readiness program called “Career Launch” places teens with internships in their fields of interest. It also hosts classes in job readiness training, which teach skills such as resume writing and public speaking. The program gives teens the opportunity to discover what they are interested in and what careers they would like to pursue.
