The Mission

The College and Career Readiness Bureau (CCRB) of the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) launched the Summer Enrichment Internship Program in the summer of 2021. The federal government committed more than $9.89 million for the program as part of pandemic relief efforts. Under the program, funding covered the cost of summer internships for New Mexico high school students in June-September of 2021 only. The goal was to provide high school students with the opportunity to participate in high-quality internships (20 hours per week for 6 weeks) in government agencies, including county, tribal, and/or municipal placements.
