CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (March 12, 2024) – The Cherokee County Community Development Agency has two paid summer internship opportunities for undergraduate or graduate college students looking to experience hands-on local government work.

Through the Georgia County Internship Program, a program with the Association County Commissioners of Georgia Civic Affairs Foundation, one internship will focus on housing in the county. Working with staff, a housing stock analysis will be completed, generating deliverables and data, including maps, tables and a housing stock summary to inform housing policy and regulatory decisions.

The Community Development Agency intern will work with staff to create a projects dashboard for the county website. Specifically, the intern will collaborate with engineering, planning & zoning, GIS and other departments to develop the dashboard to provide critical information on the wide array of public capital infrastructure and private development projects underway.

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a college or university with a focus on public administration, planning, architecture, public policy or a similar field, with an interest in working in local government.

“These internship opportunities will provide professional experience for a college student, allowing them to shadow professional staff as they perform their duties and attend meetings with customers and citizens to learn more about both community development and local government functions,” said Community Development Director Brantley Day.

Qualified candidates should visit view the job descriptions. Cover letter, resume and three professional references must be sent to Rhonda Hilliard,, no later than March 22. Interviews are expected to occur in late March/early April with offers to finalists expected by April 12. The schedule may change.
