Young people in Fulton who want paid job experience may be able to secure a position through the county’s 2018 summer youth internship program.
Internships are available from more than 60 private, public and non-profit employers in a range of career fields. The program, which launched last summer, was conceived of as a way to help kids from areas with low educational and economic attainment rates.
The areas were chosen based on factors including juvenile crime and the absence of job opportunities for youth. A limited number of internships are open to those aged 16-24 who attend the following high schools or live in these zip codes:
• Douglas (30318)
• Carver (30315)
• Maynard H. Jackson (30312)
• Westlake (30331)
• Langston Hughes (30213)
• South Atlanta (30354)
Applicants must be eligible to work in the United States and must be attending school and/or unemployed. The application period runs Monday through April 11.
The internships last from June 13 to July 17. Seekers may apply online or in person at the following locations:
From April 2-6, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
• South Fulton Career Center, 5710 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park
• Adamsville Workforce Center, 3700 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive
From April 9-11, 3:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
• The Department of Community Development, 137 Peachtree Street NW
Applicants must bring a Georgia ID or driver’s license; a high school ID with the last report card issued or a college ID with a letter of acceptance or residency form; or a notarized affidavit declaring residency in Fulton County.
