Internship Program

We are now accepting applications for our Spring 2015 session (January- May). 

The Mayor's Internship Program is designed to immerse collegiate and professional interns in city government by matching interns to their fields of interest inside the public service sector. In the spirit of diversity and progressivism that characterizes San Francisco, the Mayor’s Office welcomes intern candidates of various backgrounds who wish to bring innovative ideas from their communities to City Hall and from City Hall to their communities. While you are here, you will not only be involved in the operations of the city, but be exposed to many community service opportunities as well.
