City of Savannah accepting applications for Summer 500 program

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The city of Savannah is currently accepting applications for its Summer 500 program.

The program provides internships to high school students who are 16 and older. The internships pay a minimum of $8 an hour with a minimum of 32 hours a week.

"Many students think the career path there is only in the medical area; 'I've got to be a doctor or an RN,' but that's not the case," said "We have about 80 different positions from engineers to dietitians. You name it, lawyers; we got it," said Paul Hinchey, St, Joseph's/Candler President & CEO.

The deadline to apply is March 30.
