Central San is proud to offer both an intern and summer student program wherein students gain experience working in the field of their choice. Our intern and summer student positions offer an opportunity to apply knowledge learned in the classroom to hands-on experience.  Students will gain knowledge of the employer, industry and career field while gaining valuable work experiences and providing a meaningful service to the community.




Externship Program

Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (Central San) has had a long-standing internship, co-op, and summer student program where we’ve given hands-on experiences to college students (many of whom have come back to work for us). Central San now hosts an Externship Program for students from colleges and universities all over the country. Our cohort-style learning experience is designed as an insider look at multiple career paths in the wastewater industry and an opportunity to make connections, not only with established staff at Central San but also with fellow externs.
