This is a partnership with Senator Sue Rezin, Grundy Economic Development Council and the Grundy Area Vocational Center to give students real world experience in a wide range of fields, all while collecting a paycheck!   


We have 17 local companies providing over 40 paid internships to high school students.  If you are a current Grundy County high school junior or senior attending Coal City, Gardner-South Wilmington, Minooka, Morris High School, or a GAVC student, we encourage you to apply for these great opportunities.

Some of the information that is required for the application will include a letter of interest, current resume and a unofficial transcript, along with three references in PDF format.   


The application screening process will take place during the month of March. The qualified candidate’s applications will then advance to the participating companies for consideration.
