High school students interested in technology will have an opportunity this summer to hone their work skills.
The Technology Association of Georgia has extended its high school summer internship program to include 10 positions open to students in the metro Augusta area with a career interest in computer programming, according to a news release. These projects could include Web and mobile app development, information technology, testing services and application documentation.
The program, offered by TAG’s education collaborative, provides students interested in science, technology, engineering and math careers with a “hands-on” work experience at technology companies.
Launched in 2009, the internship program has placed 219 students with Atlanta-based companies.
Applicants are screened for their skills and interests before being partnered with companies. Students will work at least five weeks between June 3 and Aug. 2, and are paid a $1,000 stipend by their host company.
