District School Representative Testimonial
Submitted By: South Coast ROP
Laguna Beach Unified School District
"ROP is an essential part of our high school program. It provides a crucial opportunity for our students to explore and experience career options in a relevant, hands-on manner. Students who were capable but uninspired became passionate about a career after their ROP experience. It literally changes lives. Students who otherwise may have floundered through a variety of jobs or community college courses became part of our economic engine - an asset to their families and our society. California schools would not be able to offer the same depth and breadth of career-related opportunities as ROP. They are a boon to our public education system."
