Application process set to open for Summer Internship Program

The Future Leaders of Shreveport Summer Internship Program launched three years ago by Mayor Adrian Perkins will open its application process on Friday, April 8 at 8 a.m.

“Young people represent the future of this city,” said Mayor Perkins. “This program is a great opportunity to give them first-hand experience with the inner workings of city government and is an excellent way to train the next generation of public servants.”

The internship program will give high school and college students from Shreveport the opportunity to work in city government and with some area businesses. Local businesses can partner with the city by either hiring interns through the mayor’s internship program or by making a monetary donation to support the program.
