Richardson Mayor Paul Voelker and RISD Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Stone have decided to move forward with the Richardson Mayor’s Summer Internship Program. In light of the disruption created by COVID-19, they believe summer employment opportunities for teens are more important than ever.

The internships will look a tad different this year. Because of social-distancing requirements, both on-site internships held at a workplace as well as remote work-from-home internships will be offered.

While student registration is now closed, Mayor Voelker and Dr. Stone are encouraging businesses to sign up and host or sponsor an intern (or several).
