The shadowing program expands cooperation between cities and universities and serves as a valuable learning experience for students. More importantly, this may be an opportunity for a city to recruit talented individuals to work in local government.
If your city is offering local government internships, GMA would like to help you find qualified interns. Internships also provide an opportunity for a city to recruit talented individuals to work in local government.
Through the Local Government Practicum, second-year MPA students at Georgia universities have the opportunity to gain real-world experience working in city governments throughout the state.
