This internship resource was revised and updated in 2012 by combining and amending two existing ICMA resources, the Model Internship Guidelines and the Internship Toolkit. Special thanks to the 2011–2012 ICMA Task Force on Internships that reviewed these two resources by streamlining existing content and adding new sections where necessary.
Keeping with the goals of both original documents, this new resource is intended to help local government managers and MPA programs work together to develop meaningful internship opportunities that benefit both students and the local governments.
