Analyzing brain scans and MRI data, coordinating professional sports press conferences, exploring airfield operations, witnessing a baby’s birth and working side-by-side with architects and engineers. These are just a handful of the life-changing opportunities that nearly 400 high school students experienced this summer as part of the 11th-annual Mayor’s Intern Fellows Program. To celebrate, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and more than 1,000 students and supporters gathered today at the Hyatt Regency Dallas for a luncheon to honor the interns and thank the hundreds of businesses and nonprofits that back the program.

Students, who attend 52 Dallas ISD, Richardson ISD and public charter high schools, participated in eight-week paid internships working 20-to-40 hours per week earning at least an hour, at some of Dallas’ top corporations, nonprofits and legal firms. The internships, which began June 11, will conclude Aug. 3.

Since the program’s inception, 2,569 high school students have traded in their laid-back summer days for real-world jobs, generating payrolls topping .65 million. This year, approximately 2,325 students applied for internships, 930 qualified for the Job Fair, and a record-breaking 394 students were hired by 238 businesses and nonprofits.
