DETROIT (AP) - A 10-week summer program will allow some high school students to work with the Detroit Tigers, Red Wings, Little Caesars and other companies run by the Ilitch family.

Ilitch Holdings created the 24 paid internships for students at Detroit’s Cass Technical High School.

The school district says the work will provide students with hands-on experience in event management, marketing, public relations, finance and other areas.

Ilitch Holdings President and Chief Executive Christopher Ilitch says students in the program will “play an important part in the continued growth” of Detroit.

Students must be at least 16 years old and have a minimum 3.0 grand point average to qualify. The interns will work directly with Ilitch company employees on business projects throughout the summer.
