SEAHAWK MENTORING PROGRAMS
Your Opportunity to Soar to New Heights!
Los Angeles Harbor College is expanding its efforts to ensure that local students have career and life opportunities. Our goal is to ensure that they have the skills they need to thrive, to get ahead, to be as great as they can be.
Exposing students to professions early, in practical, pragmatic, and hands-on environments is just another part of our comprehensive approach to career and technical education.

60% of students are not Career Ready. We are changing that.
Students need exposure to field-trips, seminars, career days, one-on-one relationship, and hands-on visits across diverse industries and public sector. This early exposure is crucial to making their future college-to-career choices.
Our Seahawk Mentoring Program helps college students make informed decisions about their career aspirations, discovered or soon to be discovered - from workplace tours, to professional mock interviews, to professional mentored discussions.
Student leadership is encouraged to draw from their college-to-career experiences, and put into practice new skills – from speaking at local high schools, to peer-to-peer mentoring relationships, to volunteering at on-campus career and industry spotlight events
