For three weeks, interns will undertake various projects, develop computer and workplace skills, network, and explore possible career paths. Upon successful completion of the program, they earn a $500 stipend and letter of recommendation.
Since 2007, thirty-five Christian County youth have served as city interns, receiving valuable workplace readiness and other skills along with the opportunity to see different facets of municipal government at work.
