Supporting Succession Planning & Recruitment

With retirement on the horizon for many in the current workforce, local governments are challenged to find specialized staff. To support succession planning and recruitment efforts, Sourcewell offers internship programs.

Nicole Rubbelke, a former intern turned full time employee, meets with her Supervisor at Wadena County Human Services during her Sourcewell-subsidized internship.


Working with local governments in the five-county service area, Sourcewell facilitates and funds internships to bring college students into local government offices. From grant writing and public works to administration and social services, interns provide valuable support services—all while learning about government and gaining experience.

Sourcewell covers $12/hr, up to 40 hrs/wk.
