NACCHO Internship Program

NACCHO Internship Program

Program Description

NACCHO has a year round internship program for interested individuals with a minimum of one year of college-level courses and a minimum of one year working in an office setting. Internships may differ depending on the division or program within NACCHO hosting the intern. At minimum, internships run for three months, with a maximum of six months.

NACCHO has two types of positions: full-time and part-time. Full-time positions are from 30–37.5 hours per week (4–5 days a week, 7.5 hours a day), and pay a stipend for the semester of $1,500.

The number of hours worked within the range is determined by the intern in conjunction with NACCHO staff. The duration of the semester is determined at the beginning of the internship.
