Students can apply for more than 400 programs in the arts, communication, leadership, sports and STEM that begin the week of July 6. Teens will earn a stipend between $336 and $850 depending on the length and level of expertise required for the program.
The programs – which begin June 24th – are free and open to Chicago high school students who are at least 14 years old (16 years old for internships). In total, about 13,000 paid apprenticeship and internship opportunities will be available. Participating teen apprentices will be eligible to earn a stipend of up to $420 depending on the program level; interns can earn up to $10.50 per hour.
Some programs started this week, so Chicago high school students should apply as soon as possible for the more than 7,000 paid apprenticeship and internship opportunities across the city, including a number in Austin.
