Internship Goals

Intrerns networking


The Parks and Recreation Department Internship Program is designed to bridge the gap between formal academic training and practical work experience. Interns are integrated into the work force and become engaged in daily issues confronting professional staff in a public sector setting. Throughout the internship the department endeavors to:

Provide the student an opportunity to integrate theory and practice to his/her professional education, by encouraging the exchange of insights between the professional agency and the student.

Provide the student an opportunity to promote and expand his/her philosophy and understanding of the parks and recreation profession.

Enable the student to realize his/her own strengths and weaknesses.

Provide the student with the opportunity to gain experience in leadership, supervision and administrative functions within a recreation setting.

Help the student gain an understanding and appreciation of the roles, duties and responsibilities of a full-time professional and the people they serve.

Help the intern build networking skills.
