High School Internship Programb

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.

More and more people are getting ready to travel by plane. Who is going to fly them?Airlines, especially those in Asia, have ordered new aircraft worth hundreds of billions of dollars in the past few years as rising incomes boost travel numbers to a record. This has led to a shortage of experienced pilots, a situation that looks set to worsen. The world will need 637,000 more pilots in the two decades through 2036, Boeing predicts.
