Connections Beyond the Classroom

Intern. Interview. Shadow. Get a taste of a career.

Connections Beyond the Classroom (CBC) provides Menlo students the opportunity to explore career options through internships and shadow experiences even before they enter college. Work-based learning experiences are a great way to narrow interests and focus future learning. Many of the opportunities listed in the CBC database are made possible by our current parents and the alumni community, and therefore unique and exclusive to Menlo School students and young alumni.

Are you ready to start searching for internships, shadows and resources?

Listings of currently available CBC Internships and Shadows (requires student or young alumni login) are updated starting in late fall and all throughout the school year.  Internships or shadow days may last one day, a few weeks, throughout the summer or even during the school year and are often very flexible around vacations and sports.  

NOTE: You may be asked to setup a login (follow the steps on the login menu).
