College students invited to apply for paid summer internships through City’s Ambassador Program

The City of San Antonio Department of Human Services is now accepting applications for the 2014 Ambassador Program.

The Ambassador Program is an internship program for currently enrolled college students sponsored by the City of San Antonio. The program launched in summer 2004 through an initiative presented by then-District 7 Councilman Julián Castro.

The program exposes students to professional opportunities and innovative career paths through paid internships and training experience in high-demand occupations in an effort to attract San Antonio’s graduating professionals to jobs and industries within the local community. Ambassadors are placed in an 11-week long internship from a variety of participating local, state and nationwide colleges and universities from May 23 through August 8.

Applicants must be San Antonio high school graduates and permanent residents of San Antonio, have already completed at least one full year (two semesters) at college, and maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA. Applicants must submit a completed application by March 31, 2014.
