For 90 years, The Montgomery County Planning Department has won acclaim for planning innovative solutions to land use and development challenges. We apply smart growth strategies to cultivate vibrant new urban centers and transit-oriented development; forge environmental protections; preserve historic features; and encourage great community design.

To learn more about who we are and what we do, watch this brief video: M-NCPPC, Montgomery Planning.

We are seeking two interns who are working towards their graduate degree in Human Resources Management and Organizational Development; or a retiree looking for a challenge!

One volunteer will be working with the Planning Department's Recruiter to help research recruitment resources and assist with developing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategic recruitment plan. The Recruitment Intern will also assist in developing a community engagement plan for the Human Resources Unit.

The other volunteer intern will be working with the Human Resources Manager and assisting with managing the life cycle of a training program. This volunteer will help create a facilitator database, monitor the Department's projected training goals, assist with the mentoring program and Planning University Leadership Institute, and provide content and monitor the Department's training webpage.

Training will be provided by the Department's Recruiter, the previous intern, and the Human Resources Manager. Montgomery County Planning Department is an equal opportunity employer and engager of volunteers, and values diversity. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We will do what we can to provide reasonable accommodation to individuals with disabilities to participate in the volunteer application and interview process; and to perform essential functions for this volunteer internship opportunity. Please contact us at 301-495-4511 to request accommodation.
