Internships at Animas, Big Picture and Durango High Schools

Welcome to the BEC where our top goal is to support YOU to have the information you need to connect your talents, interests and skills to the world of work. If you're going to work for more years than you'll be in school, why not make it something that you like!? That's what we're about and we're here to help! 

When you're in your internship class with the BEC, you'll use the Transeo platform to find opportunities and track your progress. Click the button below to login, create your profile and tell us what your interests and strengths are, then begin searching the list of local professionals who are open to informational interviews, job shadows, internships and more! If you can't login, email Janae (address below) and let me know you'd like to be signed up! (Note: the Transeo Connection is only for students currently in internship programs at AHS, BPHS, or DHS)
