The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe is proud to provide employment opportunities for high school and college students, which is 100% funded through the Room Occupancy Fee. To help report on this initiative, we are proud to share information on work summer students are doing through their internships, which places them in areas specific to their chosen career path.

Seanna Villeneuve, SRMT Health Services Business Office Summer Intern.

Troy Kioronhiakwente Francis, Traditional Support Summer Intern - Troy is 22-years old and will be a sophomore this fall at Carleton University. He appreciates the outdoors and takes every opportunity he can to learn. When asked him what his goal was for the future, he said that he hopes to help bring back traditional knowledge to the people of Akwesasne. While keeping him occupied during his summer break from college, interning with the Traditional Support Program only provides more learning opportunities for him to fulfill his goal in life.

Seanna Villeneuve, Health Services Business Office Summer Intern - Seanna is 21-years old and this fall will be starting her freshman year at the University of British Columbia. She has many different hobbies and interests, including photography and reading. Seanna plans to go for her Master's Degree and hopes to find a career in psychology. To her, this summer internship with Health Services is an opportunity to see how the health field works in Akwesasne.
