In 2017 Barnstable County’s Resource Development Office launched the “On Roads to Opportunity Internship Program’ placing students in unpaid internships in one of our many departments at Barnstable County, and serving as an additional resource to our colleagues.
Barnstable County will again offer students opportunities to explore career paths and gain experience in several departments at Barnstable County through summer internships in 2018. These unpaid internships will each run roughly 12 weeks, from mid-May through mid-August.
Internships at Barnstable County are a great way to contribute locally and to gain valuable professional experiences in a variety of contexts. Listed below are the departments offering unpaid summer internships. Please click on a department to read the full description and to apply. Applications for summer internships are being accepted now. For full consideration, please apply by April 22, 2018.
The Resource Development Office serves as the hub for students, Barnstable County department supervisors, and academic advisors for the On Roads to Opportunity Internship Program. Our staff is available to assist in developing internship placements, monitoring the value to both students and Barnstable County, and in general, as a support to the Intern Supervisors and Interns.
