Combining Plano’s vibrant business community with a nationally-recognized school district, the Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program connects motivated high school students with exceptional local businesses and organizations.

Since 2014, the inaugural year for the program, 204 Plano high school students have received internships at small and large companies, nonprofits and governmental agencies throughout the city. Providing life changing, real work experiences, these internships have helped build the vision and the skills needed for students to successfully transition into college and into future careers. And for participating companies, the Mayor’s Summer Internship Program has proved to be a rewarding investment in the area’s future workforce — showing interns that their hometown is more than a starting point, it is a career destination.

Considering the exceptional benefits of the Mayor’s Summer Internship Program, Mayor LaRosiliere believes that it is crucial for the internship program to reach as many students as possible and why he personally encourages your organization to get involved!
