Paid internships organized by the Moya Career employment center were attended by almost 400 Moscow schoolchildren aged 14 to 17. The first stream will end on July 30. For 20 days, teenagers tried themselves in different professions in the organizations of the capital.

The guys were able to take a direct part in the projects that are being implemented by the city services, ”she said.
