High School Students – Where Can The Red Line Take You This Summer?

The Red Line High School Internship Program is designed to engage students in the Red Line Project who live or attend school in the corridor (Woodlawn High School, Edmondson-Westside High School, Patterson High School) and expose them to educational and career opportunities in transportation. Created by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) as a way to reach out to the Red Line community and involve those who would ultimately benefit from the Red Line transit service, the program has been recognized as a model template for engaging young people in the transportation development process. The program will teach students about the Red Line, solicit their input on the Red Line and allow students to produce materials that may be used on the project.
