Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP)

The Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP) provides opportunities for youth ages 18-24 who are currently not in school and not employed.

Participants also receive assistance with pursuing educational options such as placement into a High School Equivalency (HSE) program and/or help enrolling into college as well as assistance with career placement such as finding employment and/or gaining certificate training in a specialize field. Past interns had the opportunity to explore fields in:
