Mayor Sylvester Turner recently kicked off a new initiative to provide summer internships and jobs to Houston’s young people.
The Houston Airport System supported Hire Houston Youth by hiring 49 students for a summer internship at the airports that will develop their job skills in a variety of areas from airport operations and management to information technology and security.
The internship program began June 13 and runs through August 5. At the end of the program, the interns will present a final project that will build their presentation skills and can also be used to showcase their readiness for future job and educational opportunities.
