The Metropolitan Transportation Commission High School Summer Internship Program is accepting student applications online for about 38 internships that will be available throughout the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
The pay rate is $10.55 per hour. Each internship will last up to a maximum of 250 hours. Students may work full-time or part-time, for up to 10 weeks, between June 19 and Aug. 30.
The program is designed to promote interest in transportation as a potential career; help students understand the role of transportation agencies; provide skill-building and enrichment opportunities; and provide assistance to MTA’s partner transportation agencies.
Interested tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade students are invited to apply. The deadline for applications is Feb. 28.
To apply, students must complete an online application, with a page that describes in the applicant’s own words a transportation problem in the community and what could be done to resolve the matter. Also attach one letter of recommendation from a teacher, principal, counselor, religious leader or employer (two letters are required if GPA is below 2.8).
