Yesterday, La Salle hosted it’s annual La Salle Works Reception. La Salle Works, the school’s intensive internship program, offers students paid and unpaid internships to prepare for and in the world of work. Students gain real-world experience and begin to think about their future careers.
During the dinner, many representatives from different agencies all over New York City presented the opportunities for work they offer at their sites. La Salle offers over 100 internship sites to choose from. Students have the opportunity to work with real estate agencies, technology companies, city council, law firms and much more.
Among the many speakers was Mr. Bernard McElhone, La Salle Academy Board of Trustee Consultant and major supporter of the school. Mr. McElhone started the La Salle Works program three years ago, recognizing the need and the great potential in the young men at La Salle. While McElhone did not graduate from La Salle, he is a proud member of this community. He encouraged the young men to work hard and to represent La Salle well. La Salle thanks Mr. McElhone for all of his support and for beginning this invaluable program.
