Summer in the City Internship Program

The City of Hopkinsville’s Summer in the City Internship Program’s main mission is to give youth an opportunity to learn about the city while gaining valuable job skills that can be applied to future careers. Debuting in the summer of 2007, the program has seen 40 participants complete the internship.

Unlike many youth-orientated internships, the Summer in the City Internship Program seeks to offer interns substantive assignments throughout the length of the program.  As a valued team member, you will have the opportunity to perform assignments like regular city staff as well as learn valuable lessons about the workforce.  As part of the program, interns will also complete individual or group projects of their choosing. 

Applications for our tenth class of interns will be available in the spring of 2016. Please check back then for additional information.
