ACCG offers paid spring and summer county internships

ATHENS, Ga. -- (submitted by ACCG) Students looking for an internship this spring and summer should explore opportunities available in county government.  The Georgia County Internship Program (GCIP) was developed through a partnership between the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) and the Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE) to provide college, graduate and technical school students with opportunities to work in counties, allowing these students to gain valuable work experience while learning about local government operations.

More than 100 paid spring and summer internships currently are available through this program in locations throughout the state.  Interested students can view internship opportunities at: www.GeorgiaCountyInternships.org

Last year, ACCG received a $250,000 grant from the Georgia Department of Labor to fund paid internships.  This grant has been extended to fund additional internship opportunities through June 30, 2011.  To date, the program has funded internships in 49 counties for 139 students.
