Long Beach Career-Linked Learning (CaLL) connects students with local, regional and national employers to give you real world experiences through high-quality work-based learning like internships, mentorships and job shadowing.
All Long Beach students - from middle school to college - have access to work-based learning opportunities in growing and emerging career sectors, complementing what you learn in class, so that you gain the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in college and in a future career.
Long Beach CaLL provides a structure for ongoing communication between local businesses, community organizations, families, schools, and colleges to economize resources and monitor progress toward a common goal to prepare students to succeed in college, the workforce, and in life.
Provided below is a link to our online Teacher Interest Form. Ask your teacher or advisor to fill out the interest form so we can find an opportunity for you and your class/school. Completing this short form will allow your teacher or advisor to select form a variety of opportunities, and will also provide us some basic information allowing us to identify and customize opportunities to meet your classroom or program's work-based interests and needs.
Long Beach CaLL focuses much of its efforts around supporting the Linked Learning approach adopted by the Long Beach Unified School District. Linked Learning integrates rigorous academics that meet college-ready standards with sequenced, high-quality career-technical education, work-based learning, and supports to help students stay on track.
The Linked Learning approach is implemented throughout all Long Beach high schools. Students attend pathways organized by industry-sector themes, such as engineering, health care, performing arts, business, and law. By organizing learning around a broad industry sector theme, students get exposure to a wide array of career options.
In addition to facilitating work-based learning opportunities, CaLL helps foster college-going culture through sustained partnerships with local colleges that expose high school students to an array of postsecondary options that will meet their professional goals after graduation.
