All volunteers must fill out our volunteer application. A volunteer is anyone who requests and is authorized to provide services to the County without receiving County compensation. Further requirements may be requested by the specific organization you wish to volunteer with; please check below for more information. Interns wanting to be involved in public health will need to be from Utah-based colleges.
We provide hands-on experience for our Interns that helps them gain a better understanding of what it means to be a Community Health Educator. Interns work with all of the programs within the Health Promotion Division. We provide an experience that will help them succeed in life.
Our Internship's Impact
Our interns have gone on to become wellness, health education consultant, and community health education professionals in a variety of health settings in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
What Former Interns Have to Say About Our Program:
“[I most enjoyed] the staff, the support, the mentorship, and all the learning experiences they provided me with as I was an intern.”
- Maria Rosendo, 2017 Intern
“I liked that we were exposed to all the different sections of health promotion. I felt that it was well organized and that the communication between everyone was excellent.”
- Megan Schwinghammer, 2015 Intern
“I did the wellness incentive program with the County. That was really exciting for me and challenging. I reached out to companies, sent out weekly newsletters, communicated with multiple people, built a website (because I wanted to) so participants could submit their weekly workouts, held presentations and more. It was exciting to see people so motivated and accepting these small changes to help improve their well-being.”
- Hilary Robertson, 2015 Intern
