The College and Career Readiness Bureau (CCRB) of the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) launched the Summer Enrichment Internship Program. The federal government has committed more than $9.89 million for the program as part of pandemic relief efforts. Under the program, funding is available to cover the cost of summer internships for current New Mexico high school students in June-September of 2021 only. The goal is 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. We recommend that you encourage your county manager/tribal leader to participate in the program by applying for funding by May 7, 2021 (counties) and May 14, 2021 (tribes).
