Minneapolis Parks and Recreation offers a wide range of internship opportunities for college students and graduates that assist in bridging the gap between the educational experience and the professional work environment. Interns gain valuable skills and connections that very often lead to future opportunities with the City of Minneapolis, with other municipalities, and with other public and private sector organizations. 

Types of work include accounting, marketing, clerical duties, park maintenance, programming for recreation centers, environmentalism, tree planting, and more. You will have real responsibilities, while continuing to learn and refine your leadership skills.
