The 2016 Metro Summer Internship Program was a great success! Select students from Davidson County High Schools attended their orientation for the 2016 Metro Summer Youth Program on May 31. Mayor Megan Barry made a visit to speak with the students about Metro and the importance of building their skills in the workforce.
The program has tripled in size, from the past year, to 150 students!
The Summer 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. Positions ranged from working at the Mayor’s Office, Metro Parks, Nashville International Airport, and many more across Davidson county. In addition, both before and throughout the program, all participants will receive opportunities for skill building and training.
Once the students completed their programs, they presented their reflections on what they learned over the month long internship. These students did an excellent job and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work. We would also like to say a big Thank You to all of the employers who participated in this summer program. The skills you taught these interns will be carried on in their personal and professional lives.
