What is Winona Internships?

In these challenging economic times, college students need to set themselves apart from the crowd when it comes to finding a job in their chosen field. A terrific way for students to gain a competitive advantage is to offer students real-life experience through an internship or volunteer work.

Winona Internships began in 2008 as a collaborative effort by the Winona County Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) and the three higher learning institutions in the City of Winona, Minnesota: Saint Mary's University, Winona State University and Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical. In 2011, the Winona County Personnel Department assumed responsibility for the program. The goal of the internships is to match student interns with available internships or other volunteer opportunities in the Winona, Minnesota area. Internships provide an opportunity for students to link theory with practice in those agencies that have committed to participate in the internship program.
