Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (Outreach) has received a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF) to hire two local high school students as interns for the summer.
“We’re very grateful to the PCCF for providing the funding to help us hire interns again this year,” said Carol Newton, Outreach’s Executive Director, “we believe that the students will gain valuable work experience and have the chance to help our neighbors in need.”
The internships will begin on June 26 and run through August 4, 2013.  In order to comply with the grant requirements, students must be enrolled in high school or a similar home school program at the start of the internship.  Additionally, students must be a rising sophomore, junior or senior at the time the internship begins. Students must also be at least 16 years old and reside in Polk County or Landrum (zip code 29356).
Interested students should call 828.894.2988 to schedule an interview and send their resume to or stop by the Outreach office at 134 White Drive to fill out an application.
