CareerSource Gulf Coast is sponsoring a Summer Internship Program.
The program is for young adults aged 17-22 who are economically-disadvantaged and are not employed.
This is an opportunity for young adults to learn valuable real-world work skills. Eligible participants will interview with local businesses and be selected to work for one of those businesses over the summer months.
Each week the interns’ work habits will be evaluated by their employer. The weekly evaluation will be used to determine the rate of pay up to $200 a wee4k.
Interns may be required to submit to a drug and background check (if required by the employer) and must comply with the employer dress code.
The program runs June 2 until Aug. 1. Participants must be able to work the schedule offered by their employer site.
Internship sites will be set up at different businesses throughout Gulf County, and many will be set up assisting with the summer program at the Washington Gym.
Applications are available at the Washington Gym Complex, Room 307 from Johanna White or see Melvin Martin at the Central Resource Center located in the Washington Improvement Group’s office at 401 Peters Street.
The telephone number is 229-1641. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (closed for lunch 12-1 p.m.)
