The City of Coral Gables values the contributions made by students of all ages and backgrounds and is continuously seeking bright innovative, results-oriented individuals to join our Internship Program. This program has been developed to provide high school, college, university or graduate students with the opportunity to gain both academic and practical experience working in local government. There are paid and non-paid internship opportunities depending on the department’s needs and budget. Internships are designed to provide the participants with the opportunity to apply academic skills to on-the job assignments with the City. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the City of Coral Gables and the exceptional services it provides to the community. All volunteers are required to undergo a background prior to the approval of a volunteer assignment.
