Thank you for your interest in an internship with the Clayton County Parks and Recreation Department.  We offer an educational work experience that is beneficial to students working in a parks and recreation setting.  This setting provides internship opportunities in Park Services, Recreation Services, Enterprise Services, and Open Space/Green Space Operations.  Internships are offered for a twelve-week period, traditionally in the late spring and summer months.  Applicants should be at least a junior, working towards an applicable degree and be recommended by their college or university.

Internship Program Goals

  • Provide the student an opportunity to combine theory and practice with his/her professional education by encouraging the exchange of insights between Clayton County Parks & Recreation (CCPRD) and the student.
  • Provide the student an opportunity to expand his/her philosophy and understanding of the parks and recreation profession.
  • Help the student gain an understanding and appreciation of the roles, duties and responsibilities of a full-time professional and the people they serve.
