Virtual Student Leadership Program accepting applications from high school students, district alumni

In response to the unique challenges presented by COVID-19, the Houston Independent School District is excited to announce that 100 interns will be hired to tutor students remotely.

The HISD Virtual Student Leadership Program will offer online instruction and lessons to students in need, delivered by student interns. To promote social distancing and properly plan, the focus of HISD’s Summer Student Leadership Program has been shifted from in-person internships within departments to online virtual tutoring services.

In addition to providing high-quality virtual academic instruction, the district remains committed to ensuring that students have access to competitive summer employment opportunities. All students who applied for the Summer Student Leadership Program will be notified of the change and are invited to apply for a paid internship tutoring students virtually.

Openings are available in: Computer Science, English/Language Arts, Fine Arts, Instructional Technology, Math, Peer Mentorship, Reading, Science, Social Studies, and more.

Applicants must be HISD high school students or alumni currently enrolled at a college or university, be legally authorized to work in the United States, and at least 16 years old. Applications must be submitted by Monday, May 25. Employment dates will be announced at a later time.
