The Metropolitan Council’s Annual Internship Program offers a wide variety of opportunities to qualifying interns. Our program is designed to educate and mentor interns by providing professional on-the-job training and development. Participants of our internship program receive an hourly salary! Most interns work full-time during the summer, and some opportunities continue part-time through the school year.
The Metropolitan Council’s Urban Scholars Program is a 12-week internship and leadership development program starting May 26, 2015. This program will provide students from diverse racial, ethnic, and/or low socio-economic backgrounds with distinctive professional experience focused on gaining essential leadership skills, and creating career pathways to positions of influence in public service. In addition to completing projects as identified by participating Council departments (see available placements), students will participate in approximately 8 to 10 hours per week of leadership development activities such as public speaking, financial literacy, career guidance, networking, etc. Urban Scholars will also serve as ambassadors to the communities by sharing their internship and transit-riding experience through blogs and journals.
