GRCC Public Works Academy

A career serving your community is at your fingertips. Don’t miss this opportunity to enter the field of public works!

Public works employees are vitally important in our communities, and in great demand across West Michigan. Municipalities are looking for people who are passionate about improving the lives of those around them. The need is great, so communities have partnered with Grand Rapids Community College to develop a hands-on, active learning experience that prepares people for great careers and opportunities in public works. Successful graduates of the Public Works Academy will receive interviews with two of the community partners for possible seasonal or internship positions at public works facilities in West Michigan. This is the first step to secure a full-time position.
