*2. Each year MTC sponsors a High School Internship Program. The purpose of
the program is to introduce high school students (in the 10th, 11th or 12th
grade) to career opportunities in the field of transportation, to show them
how public transportation agencies play an overall part in the community,
county, and regional transportation operations, and to provide MTC's
transportation partners (such as traffic engineers at city and county public
works departments or planners at transit agencies) with assistance.


The program was conceived of by MTC's Minority Citizens Advisory Committee
to encourage young people who might not otherwise consider a career in
transportation to do so. Students of all races and ethnic backgrounds are
strongly encouraged to apply.
