GDOE offers paid internships to high school seniors

131

As we settle into the summer, interested high school seniors can gain workplace experience through a paid internship program organized by the Guam Department of Education.

GDOE is offering 16 slots for its second internship cycle which focuses on engaging public school students in projects to develop their leadership and communication skills.

Once selected, interns will work from 8 in the morning to 12 noon over the course of three separate sessions throughout the year, with the first session beginning on Monday, June 29.

Interns can earn up to $1,100 by participating, but they must have at least a 2.0 grade point average.

After the success of last year’s cycle, GDOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez says he is excited for this year’s batch of interns.

“Last year, we piloted our first cycle of GDOE summer interns and basically what they came in to do was come in, work half-day, and participate in projects that the central office division had underway. We had our students working in the Chamorro studies division all the way to our research and planning office as well as in our finance and business offices,” Fernandez said.

The application for the summer internship program is available on GDOE.net and can be turned in via email.

The deadline to submit applications is next Wednesday, June 24.
