Native American Management Internship


Gilbert, Arizona is proud to offer the Native American Management Internship (NAMI) Program to students studying the fields of government and business leadership and provide them with  exposure to innovative practices in community service.

Students participating in the NAMI program gain exposure to innovative management practices, work on executive level projects, conduct research and program analysis, and make various presentations at staff meetings. Students will also attend town-related events, council meetings, and staff meetings of all levels.

The goal is for management interns to apply the knowledge gained through their real-world local government experience to issues important to Native communities and organizations following graduation.

The program also focuses providing opportunities for interns to interact with staff and the community to assist in building understanding and awareness of Native American culture and issues.  Each intern will complete a personal presentation and project presentation.Intern work assignments are tailored, to the extent possible, to the area of interested and desired growth of the individual.  

Internships take place during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters and are 20 hours per week.  Interested applicants submit a cover letters and resumes for consideration.   Graduate students are preferred, but undergraduate students may be considered.  Recruitment's are typically March (Summer/Fall Internships) and October (Spring Internships).
