The Miami Dolphins hosted a group of twenty students from Booker T. Washington High School that are part of the Leadership Miami® program.
The students were given a “behind the scenes” tour of Sun Life Stadium and learned about the business side of Stadium Operations. A panel of Dolphins staff members including Group Tickets, Player Development, Accounting, Community Relations, Broadcasting and Media Relations spoke to the group in the Dolphins Locker Room about their career paths and day to day responsibilities. Dolphins’ staff spoke about the many careers available within sports and gave advice on how internships are a great way to get your foot in the door.
