Colin DeLuca is a Junior in high school at Innovation Academy Charter School, interested in political science and government. Outside of class, Colin enjoys biking with friends, skiing, and writes for his school newspaper, The Innovator.

He also learned about the election process while working in the April 2022 local election and wrote new test questions to certify prospective election workers on procedures for primary elections. 

Next year Colin will be entering his Senior year of high school and will absolutely be returning as a volunteer to help out with elections in the future!

Community Leadership through Education, Responsibility, and Kindness

The Chelmsford Town Clerk's Office mentors interns interested in government, business administration, political science, history, law, archival studies, social work, communications, and many other disciplines. The Community Leadership through Education, Responsibility, and Kindness (CLERK) Internship Program is a year-round opportunity for high school students, college students, post graduates, and professionals to gain valuable experience working in local government. The Program is modeled on citizen leadership, where interns gain professional skills while contributing to Chelmsford's local government as active participants and community representatives.

The Town Clerk strongly encourages interested individuals to contact the office for more information about the application process and specific opportunities available. Internships are generally seasonal, with a fall, spring, and summer term. The office is flexible and customizes each internship to individual interests. An exciting, challenging, supportive, citizen-driven, creative and collaborative environment awaits.
