Youth Summer Internship Program Deadline Extended

Program Overview

The Summer Youth Internship Program is a short-term learning and employment opportunity for Nashville Davidson County youth.  Participants will be assigned to work at a Metro Department for twenty hours per week for four weeks.   Participants will be paid $8 an hour for both their training and work time. Participants are expected to provide their own transportation to both the training and work sites.

Eligibility and Selection Process

Eligible participants must be enrolled students in a high school in Davidson County who will complete their Junior year in May 2011 and/or expect to graduate in Spring 2012.

Applications will be reviewed for responsiveness, completeness, and neatness; diversity of schools represented; strength of written responses; and the strength of their third-party recommendation.

Final selection of participants will be made by a panel interview.

Beginning January 4, 2011, applicants may submit completed application packets by mail, personal delivery, or fax to the Nashville Career Advancement Center. All application materials must be in by 4:00 p.m. on February 11, 2011.  Late applications will not be accepted.

Applicants selected for an interview will be notified by February 25, 2011.

    Is this program available for 2012?

      • Dominique Slaughter Says:

        I saw the information for Youth Summer Internship Program Deadline Extended, but it indicated under Eligibillity that participants must be completing their junior year in May 2011 (Did you mean 2012???) and/or expect to graduate in Spring 2012. I guess my question should have been, “Will this program be available next year?”

      • ncacstaff Says:

        Yes, sorry for the mistake. This program will be available next year. Please check back around February/March to apply.
