The goal of the City of Toledo’s Internship Program is to provide students with an opportunity to gain practical experience in the public sector. In addition, the student will be able to apply the knowledge and skills developed in the academic year while interacting with influential community leaders and serving the residents of Toledo.

Our hope is to fulfill the student’s education and career exploration needs while assisting the City of Toledo in new initiatives and day-to-day operations.
