The City of Peachtree Corners is seeking eight conscientious high school students for a cohort style government internship program this summer. The program will begin June 1 and run through July 25, 1-4 p.m.
In the 9-week internship, which averages 6-10 hours a week, students are matched with professionals in the city’s departments. The on-site educational program is aimed at educating students about the different areas of government and exposing them to the challenges of running a city.Topics
Topics include public works, transportation, civil engineering, public administration, communications, community development, planning, zoning, volunteer management, code enforcement, storm water management, and municipal finance. Students are expected to complete a group project and make a group presentation at the end of the program.
“This program is purely about exposing students to the various facets of city government,” said program administrator Jennifer Howard. “We hope to create a spark. But at a minimum, students will learn about the different functions and how they are intertwined.” The internship is open to Peachtree Corners residents who are currently attending high school. Those interested in taking part in the program should send a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please explain your interest in the program and tell us about yourself
