Nassau County, NY - August 12, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano (front row-5th left) thanked the participants of the Nassau County Executive Internship Program for their dedication and hard work during the summer of 2015.
Over 50 interns from 30 disciplines completed over 5,000 hours of work across 20 county departments. County Executive Mangano's Internship Program was created to cultivate Nassau’s leaders of tomorrow, prevent the ‘brain drain,’ or the emigration of highly trained or intelligent people from Nassau, and tap into the incredible potential of Nassau County’s youth. “After a summer of learning from our skilled Commissioners and their staff I am confident that you are ready to enter the professional world in whatever field that you may choose,” remarked Mangano.
The Internship program, with its dedicated interns, interactive seminars, and carefully cultivated inclusive environment, provides students with a full experience of how their local government works. The program is open to residents of Nassau County or students who are attending college in Nassau County. This goes to the very heart of our purpose to keep students who grew up here or who are educated here connected to their community. Nassau County is in a unique position to provide opportunities to individuals from all different types of fields. Students are placed in departments according to their area of concentration, where they will learn about the field they find most interesting. The program runs each fall, spring and summer. The County Executive invites students to visit the website to learn more about applying to the program.
