      The Young Dawgs Academic Program places juniors and seniors in

semester-long internships for high school credit. Students begin with a

training period with members of UGA Human Resources, in which students

interview with UGA and community representatives.

      Students receive UGA ID cards, UGA e-mail addresses, and gain

access to online courses to help them prepare for work. Students are placed

in internships based on their career interests and work alongside members of

UGA faculty and staff, who also serve as the students’ individual mentors.

UGA strives to prepare its interns well as they begin to pursue their post-

secondary plans.
