Students wishing to acquire a variety of volunteer-employment experiences will join a stimulating, fast-paced public servant environment, and learn the many facets of municipal government. Nassau County is in a unique position to provide opportunities to individuals from all different types of fields. Every effort will be made to place students in departments according to their area of concentration.
Interns are assigned to one of the members of the Special Projects Team, who will act as a mentor and confidant. While each intern’s specific office will be responsible for their day to day progress, the Special Projects Team will be charged with monitoring the overall performance of an intern.
The program is limited to undergraduate residents of Nassau County and undergraduates attending college in Nassau County. The Nassau County Internship Program is an unpaid internship. Any paperwork or forms for an internship that involves a stipend or any other form of payment by the school or any other source must be submitted by the school, along with all similar applications from the same school, at the earliest possible date. Failure to follow this procedure may result in a denial of a request for an internship.
