The office of US Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) is currently accepting applications for this year’s Schatz Seniors High School Internship Program.

The program provides a hands-on learning opportunity about the US Senate and encourages students to be advocates in their schools and communities.

Schatz Seniors will work with outreach staff, identify issues of interest to their communities, and attend and staff special events.

“Each year our Schatz Seniors show a commitment to service and our state that keeps me optimistic about Hawai‘i’s future,” said Sen. Schatz. “I encourage all high school seniors who want to help make a difference in their communities to apply to be a part of our team.”

This is not an office position. Students will complete the majority of assignments in their homes, schools, and communities and should miss little or no class time.

The internship runs from October 2016 to April 2017; interns must commit for the full term.
