DPWH renews summer internship program

College students and out-of-school youth are now given a chance to have a productive vacation as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has reopened its summer internship program.

According to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, the DPWH Central Office will hire 40 financially-challenged youth for the agency’s government internship program, (GIP).

The DPWH has started accepting applications since March 9. Qualified applicants are college students and oit-of-school youth with minimum second year college education aged 18-23.

Hired applicants are expected to have a learn-and-work experience in the government that will allow them to earn as much as 75 percent of the prevailing minimum wage in the National Capital Region.
