Richardson Mayor’s Summer Internship Program

Have a kid who wants to explore career options and get some experience during the summer? The Richardson Mayor’s Summer Internship Program could be the match they’re looking for.

Now in its sixth year, the program is open to current high school juniors who are at least 16-years-old. Students must attend a Richardson ISD school or live in the Richardson area to be eligible for consideration.

Mayor Paul Voelker and partners of the City of Richardson will join together to provide internships in technology, manufacturing, communications, professional services, construction and more.

The internships could be from 12 to 40 hours a week for eight weeks. All the internships are both paid opportunities with in-office and virtual options.

Applications are now open, and the deadline is Mar. 22. Students also need to attend one of two workforce training workshops either Mar. 25 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Richardson High School, or Mar. 28 from 5 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Berkner High School.

The internship program runs from June 5 – Aug. 4 this summer. Just before the end of the program, there will be a celebration event held in July.
