The Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell is looking for a small team of talented students that are interested in working with our office this summer to serve over two million constituents of the Second Supervisorial District. Equity is at the center of our public service. Our interns must be committed to building on the progress LA County has made to address injustices that impact our communities.

Each intern will work directly with a Senior Deputy in our office and will have the opportunity to work closely on a focus project over the summer. The intern will also have the opportunity to work with other members of the Second District Board office team who focus in other areas of policy, legal affairs, operations, communications, and constituent engagement. Interns will be invited to participate in internal team meetings to learn about Board office operations and in meetings with County department officials to learn more about County services.

We intend to use a hybrid model for this Summer that includes work in the district offices, events throughout the community, as well as teleworking remotely.


The focus areas for our Summer Internships in 2024 are:

• Youth Development – Reducing the incarceration of justice-impacted youth.
• Human Services – Improving coordination with Community-Based Orgs, analyzing services for military veterans, and enhancing customer service of social service providers.
• Constituent Engagement – Coordinating event and working with Faith-Based Orgs.
• Justice Reform – Research and development of a Pretrial Services System.
• Environmental Justice – Research and expanding violence prevention in County parks.
