To receive the stipend and service learning hours, interns must complete all hours and additional commitments as stated in this application. Students who successfully complete the internship program will earn a $399 stipend and service learning hours. Please answer all questions completely. If you have any questions, please call or email the contact person on the application. We will not review incomplete applications. You will not be judged on your technology skills, but it is important for you to answer these questions honestly as they are a way for us to get to know our participants. There are no right answers to these questions, as long as you represent yourself accurately. Based on the applications we receive, a group of candidates will be chosen and invited to an interview. The interview will be your opportunity to shine and to tell us anything we might not have learned from your application. Our interviewers will ask you question about yourself, your experience, and your interest in becoming a RecTech Intern. You will want to arrive prepared, energized, and on time. From the interviews, we will invite the incoming class of RecTech Interns. REQUIREMENTS: - Must be 14-18 years of age; - be enrolled in high school during the 2012-13 school year or graduated in 2012; - have skills in computer and Internet basics and common software applications or desire to learn these skills; and - demonstrate good interpersonal skills including verbal communication and the desire to work with others. EXPECTATIONS: Participants will be self-motivated, punctual, enthusiastic, open-minded and willing to work with others. We expect that participants will work safely, think positively, and put forth their best effort. Attendance is mandatory at all scheduled activities. Any intern who misses a meeting or presentation without prior notice forfeits his/her position. If for some reason an intern is running late or is absent from a scheduled day, the student is required to contact the site leader. IF YOU THINK YOU WILL MISS MORE THAN 2 SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES BECAUSE OF SPORTS OR OTHER PERSONAL ENGAGEMENTS, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS PROGRAM. Be sure to review the dates and times of your program to ensure it fits your schedule. QUESTIONS?
