What the 2016 Interns said about their time with the NCACC...
“Every two weeks we would travel to different counties with a NCACC representative to meet county officials. The executive director of NCACC, Kevin Leonard, took us to Rockingham County for a commissioner’s meeting. County managers taught us much related to local government, from county budgets to school funding. Some county managers also talked about their individual working experiences, which gave me some inspirations about my career plan.“
Jingjing Gao, UNC Pembroke
“Experiencing the NC Association of County Commissioners Graduate Internship has exposed me to the daily functioning of county government. Through this program, I was able to connect and build relationships with state representatives, senators, lobbyists, board of commissioners and county managers. Upon completion of the internship, I was able to establish a mentorship with one of the county managers we visited to further discuss my career goals. I am so thankful for having this opportunity because it has provided me with the resources to inform members of my community about the importance of county government.”
Dominique Walker, NC Central University
