More than 80 high school students will gain valuable work experience this summer as they intern with the County and the City of Charlotte through the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program (MYEP).
Interns will work in various departments including DSS, Park and Recreation, Public Information and Human Resources for 20 hours a week through Aug. 11. The paid internships give students a chance to earn money over the summer and see what it’s like to work in local government. We have had student and supervisor orientations to ensure a rewarding experience for all.
The MYEP internship program is a collaborative project with the City of Charlotte and the County. The Manager’s Office, Human Resources and Public Information work together to oversee the program.
