Supporting Students Via “Easternships”

Students spent one day a week with professionals from OPX, Geppetto Catering, Anybill, OmniStudio, TerpSys and Raffa. High school students who passed their classes were eligible for this program and 16 chose to participate.

They strengthened their communication skills, learned workplace etiquette and developed skills that will help them become leaders for incoming Eastern students.
