(DALLAS, TX) - Representative Stefani Carter (Dallas) announced today the launch of the Carter Future Leaders Program, a paid summer internship opportunity for North Texas students.

The Carter Future Leaders Program is a competitive paid summer internship program that pairs high school and college-aged students with leading local businesses in the student's prospective career path. Applicants accepted into the program also have the opportunity to participate in weekend enrichment workshops led by Representative Carter and other local professionals. More than a dozen North Texas businesses have agreed to participate in the program, including University of Texas at Dallas, Methodist Richardson Medical Center, Kraft Foods, Richardson Independent School District, North Dallas Bank and Trust, Assurenet, among others.

"As a state lawmaker, I believe in the importance of supporting our youth as they prepare to enter the working world," Carter said. "Through the Carter Future Leaders Program, students can further develop the practical skills and experience they need in the real world as they work within leading local businesses."

Students hoping to apply for a spot in the Carter Future Leaders Program may contact Cristal Retana at 972-661-9649 or cristal.retana@house.state.tx.us for an application. All applications are due by April 30, 2012. The program will begin on June 11 and run through August 10, 2012.

"I am tremendously proud of this program and know it will be a great opportunity not only for local businesses, but for the students who are looking to build their skills and become even more career and college ready," Carter said.
