Public Service Internship

The Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs - Welcoming Atlanta

2020 Summer Public Service Internship (PSI)

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs – Welcoming Atlanta builds upon Atlanta’s proud tradition of inclusion and welcoming by ensuring that our immigrant and refugee neighbors are seamlessly integrated into the fabric of our community as we continue to build a multicultural city that attracts families and businesses from around the world.

The Welcoming Atlanta Public Service Internship program serves to expose all aspects of Welcoming Atlanta’s programs and initiatives. In addition to learning about the role and functions of City government, the program offers professional growth and exposes students to City agencies and organizations such as Invest Atlanta, Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Atlanta Police Department, Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Mayor’s Office of International Affairs, Mayor’s Office of Resilience and other public-private partnerships.

Public Service Interns will have the opportunity to directly work with the Welcoming Atlanta staff on ongoing projects or have the flexibility to create and coordinate an effective and engaging project. Some administrative duties, such as answering phone calls or attending community events on the weekends, are also required.
