AKWESASNE – The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) is proud to provide employment opportunities for high school and college students in the Akwesasne community. On Monday, June 27th; the Tribe welcomed its newest group of summer interns by providing an orientation for high school-aged students. The interns were welcomed by SRMT Education Division Assistant Director Courtney Thomas and Summer Intern Coordinators Seanna Villeneuve and Kahawinetha Thompson. Orientation presentations were provided by Human Resources Director Stacey Holcomb and Tribal Historic Preservation Office Director Darren Bonaparte.
Following the day-long orientation, the student interns were sent to work at Tribal programs and local businesses for the summer; such as the Akwesasne Boys & Girls Club, SRMT Environment, Early Learning Center and others. The knowledge they will gain from their summer employment will provide them with skills and experience to support their educational and career goals.
