Are these paid internships?

Internships should be vigorously supported as an important key to passing skills to the next generation and an outstanding opportunity for youngsters moving toward careers to develop their professional bearing and experience examples, both good and bad, of the personalities they are likely to come into contact with as they move forward.

Keep up the good work PW.
