Teenagers who have completed the internship will be paid a one-time stipend of 20,589 rubles (the subsistence minimum for the working-age population). In addition, everyone will receive a personal characteristic that can be useful when applying for a job or study.

The involvement of young people in working life is one of the priority tasks of the social policy of the Moscow Government. Getting initial professional experience and earning their first money, adolescents become more motivated to work, interested in getting an education and mastering a specialty. In addition, internships help to determine the choice of a future field of professional activity. This is especially important for children from low-income families and families in difficult life situations, who have fewer opportunities to try themselves in different spheres.
