Roosevelt County is hosting a Summer Internship Program for local high school students in partnership with the NM Public Education Dept. All NM Counties were afforded the opportunity to apply for funding through this new program, and Roosevelt County was excited to receive an award. Roosevelt County is seeking student applicants for this grant funded internship, students must be 16-18 years old and residents of Roosevelt County (or 15 years old who have a valid work permit). These interns will be employed 20 hours per week at $10.50 per hour for six (6) weeks.
“We are excited to host this program to help the youth of our County gain valuable knowledge and experience working with government agencies and local businesses to aid them in career exploration and setting goals for their future as they prepare to enter the workforce,” stated HR Coordinator Debra Olds. “As we build out this program, we need eligible students to apply for this great opportunity!”
Roosevelt County was awarded funding for up to 40 students. These students will be placed at various entities within Roosevelt County that have signed up to host a student intern. These entities would provide these students real world, on-the-job experience to aid them in gaining employable and knowledge skills as they prepare to enter the workforce.
