Meet Jason Carveo
In 2010, Jason Caraveo was a 20-year-old college student financially struggling to continue his education in a single parent household with three siblings. He turned to the South Bay One-Stop Center and got a paid internship in the City of Hawthorne Planning Department.
As he gained experience, Jason gained other paid internships while he continued his education. Upon graduation in 2014, Jason accepted his first full-time position as a City of Rancho Palos Verdes City Planner. Within five years he became a City of Beverly Hills Assistant City Planner.
Outcome and Benefits:
Jason has been back in his hometown of Hawthorne since 2018 as a Planning Commissioner with a 7-month-old son.
“All my accomplishments started with that paid internship through South Bay One-Stop. I tell everyone about how much the SBWIB helped me become the man I am today.”
