High School Internship Program with Senator Schatz. Juniors. Deadline - 9/5/2021, 6:00pm HST.
Senator Schatz's High School Internship Program provides a hands-on learning opportunity and encourages students to be leaders and advocates in their schools and communities. Previous classes have conducted peer surveys, attended community meetings, tracked how federal legislation impacts their communities, and learned how to propose the office take action on issues that are important to them.
The internship runs from October - April, and interns must commit for the full term. This is a virtual internship, and the work is designed to be completed outside of school hours. The program uses online tools and communication methods, including weekly video conferences, so students from all islands are encouraged to apply. Strong preference is given to students in their last year of school.
Applications for the 2021 - 22 school year must be completed before 6:00pm on Sunday, September 5, 2021.

Student vaccination requirement
The student vaccination requirement remains in place, with medical and religious exemptions available. The only change is that we will not administratively disenroll unvaccinated students from any face-to-face or hybrid classes, a process that would have needed to begin last week. There will be a mandatory weekly (minimum) testing protocol for any unvaccinated students on campus. We already knew some portion of our students would be unvaccinated due to religious and medical exemptions, so development of those protocols was already underway. We will share details separately.
Unvaccinated students should be aware that they may be ineligible for some employment opportunities and may be prohibited from participation in certain face-to-face educational activities (e.g. clinical and field work) and may therefore be prevented from completing educational requirements. Students who desire a full campus experience should be vaccinated. We are pleased that we do not observe the level of vaccination resistance present in other places, and we will continue to do everything we can to get our students vaccinated as we look forward to full approval by the FDA of at least one vaccine.
