The Santa Ana Public Library has developed a proven method of mentoring and professional guidance to recruit bilingual Spanish-speaking high school students, college-age youth, and MLIS students in a combined volunteer and paid internship program that provides exposure to the profession, hands-on experience, and mentored training in library-specific tasks. The presenters are all participants of the library's "Seeds to Trees" program at various stages of educational development: high school, community college, college, and LIS programs.
