    Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.

    What is S.T.A.R?: The Suffolk Public Schools S.T.A.R program allows high school juniors and seniors with approved work hours in their second-semester schedules to participate in a paid, high-quality, work-based learning experience working within several school division departments. 

    Applications for our Suffolk Public Schools S.T.A.R. (Start Today and Rise) student internship program are now available exclusively for 2023-2024 Juniors and Seniors. Working within several of our school division’s departments gives students a high-quality work-based learning experience during the school year.

     Internship start dates will vary but are anticipated to begin in mid-January 2024 upon our return for the new year. Students will intern from January - June 2024. The starting pay is $15.41. Students must have an approved work hour in their schedule, and if selected to participate in the program, they will need to secure their own transportation.
