Homestead runs high-tech internship

Homestead, a home-page Web site, is running a paid summer internship program that placed 17 high school students in full-time positions from June 18 through Aug. 17. The students, chosen from low-income areas of Silicon Valley, are working 40 hours per week at Homestead, Hewlett-Packard and Applied Materials in various high-tech areas, including Web design, product development and marketing. The program, which pays interns $10 per hour, devotes the first week of the internship to a weeklong "Learning Skills Academy" at Stanford University. On completing the program, interns receive a $1,000 scholarship toward future studies and an HP printer. Homestead ran a pilot version of the program last year that gave seven students internships.
