ANNOUNCEMENT – Recruiting Bay Area High School Students: Apply Now for Paid MTC Summer Internship

Do the teens in your life have some extra time over the winter holidays to think about summer internships? If so, let them know that the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is offering high school students around the Bay Area the opportunity to gain professional experience in transportation planning, engineering and related fields through its 2019 High School Internship Program. The internship program, now celebrating its 19th year, is now accepting applications for paid summer jobs with a variety of public transit agencies, city planning departments and public works agencies throughout the region. Internships are available in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma counties. A list of internship opportunities and the online application instructions are available at: https://jobs.mtc.ca.gov/internships.

Eligible students will be at least 16 years old and completing the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade by summer 2019. They will earn $15 per hour, with their wages paid by MTC, and can choose to work either full- or part-time, up to 250 hours. Students hired through the program are expected to attend an orientation session on June 18, 2019, as well as a closing forum in August, where they will present highlights of their work over the summer. Both events will take place at MTC’s offices at 375 Beale Street in San Francisco.

Students will work closely with mentors at host agencies to create rich summer experiences that foster connections for college recommendation letters and future job opportunities.
