City welcomes 2017 Summer STEPS Interns
Business

The City of West Sacramento hosted a welcome brunch and orientation for the third Summer STEPS Internship. The students spent their first day shadowing mentors in their department. The eight-week internship gives students positive examples of public service, hands-on experience, and insights into how city governments are run. The program will provide interns with practical work experience related to their academic major.

In addition to experience within their departments, the interns will also be given guided tours of each city department, attend City Council meetings and volunteer with the Age Friendly initiative.

Interns will also work to complete tasks outlined by their department mentors to earn digital badges through the LRNG platform. Each intern must accomplish a specific list of goals to earn a digital badge by the end of the summer, which can be referenced in future interviews to demonstrate the practical skills they learned with the City.  The program runs from June 19th to August 11th and ends with a completion ceremony where badges are presented.
