Phoenix Student Worker Program
Student worker program for high school students
The Phoenix Program is a partnership between MnDOT and Project Lead The Way (PLTW) which provides student jobs for high school students enrolled in science, technology, engineering or mathematics courses at area Project Lead the Way high schools.
The program also partners with local youth employment organizations including Step Up: Achieve, Right Track, and EMERGE. Students who do not attend a PLTW school but are participating in one of our other partner programs are also eligible for the program.
Please note: If there are no PLTW schools in or near a MnDOT district, students interested in STEM related careers and students who attend schools with advanced STEM curriculum are also eligible for the program.
By working at various MnDOT offices and districts statewide, Phoenix students gain on-the-job work experience in a variety of areas.
