In this program we believe that youth are entitled to not just any internship but an experience working within their dream career field, or as close as we can get to it. Youth work with organizations where they can firsthand experience their own passions and witness their future career. Youth have an opportunity to build relationships with mentors and work directly with their worksite supervisors. All while building the skills, insights and experience necessary to continue on their career path.
