MTC celebrated the completion of the 18th year of its summer high school internship program on August 10, 2018, at the Bay Area Metro Center. The students worked in agencies across the Bay Area’s nine counties this summer, with placement coordination and funding provided by MTC. This year’s class of 34 interns worked in 28 agencies throughout the region.
The internship program was created in 2000 to expose students who would not typically consider careers in the field of transportation—especially women and minorities—to the many types of jobs available in the field. It has become quite prestigious in the 18 years since its inception, with hundreds of applicants competing for the available internship positions.
