In spring of 2021, BJWSA started its inaugural 15-week high school internship program for students in the Beaufort County and the Jasper County School Districts. The internship program offers students a chance for hands-on experience in departments such as Customer Service and Field Operations.

Just as the class of 2022 started in January, BJWSA received a 2022 National Environmental Achievement Awards (NEAA) from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) in the Workforce Development Category for the inaugural intern program.
