Modesto Sound offers an after school internship program for high school students called The Job Circle. It is a free program open to students from any school in the area and is supported by volunteers, grants, and donations. Students learn skills that are useful at any job such as verbal and written communication, teamwork, general job etiquette, plus skills specific to the audio industry. This internship becomes a work and college application reference for them. Additionally they earn studio credit that can be used for studio services such as music lessons and recording. Experienced students get to become mentors to new interns and learn to be leaders before moving onto full-time college or other job opportunities thus the Job Circle continues. We welcome new interns, volunteers, and sponsors!
We also give 45 minute music technology presentations to area schools and work with Girl Scout troops to earn their media badges.
Here's a recent thank you from the Girl Scouts.
I just want to let you know, how deeply grateful I am that you are working with our Girl Scout Troop. You are so patient with the Girls and they are learning so much from you. Thank you for your passion, patience, and ability to work with youth groups. The girls are garnering so much from you that they do not even realize. The last two weeks have been amazing.
Thank you again.
