The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is offering high school students around the Bay Area the opportunity this summer to gain professional experience in transportation planning, engineering and related fields through its High School Summer Internship Program. Now celebrating its 18th year, the internship program is now accepting applications for 34 paid summer jobs with a variety of public transit agencies, city planning departments and public works agencies throughout the region including one at Tri Delta Transit and one at the City of Pittsburg.
Students can choose to work either full- or part-time, up to 250 hours, from June 26 to August 31, 2018, and will earn $15 per hour, with their wages paid by MTC. Students hired through the program are expected to attend an orientation session on June 26, as well as a closing forum on August 9, 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.
