#SACYOUTHWORKS YOUTH INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

#SacYouthWorks DiamondABOUT THE PROGRAM

The #SacYouthWorks Youth Internship program is part of the Neighborhood Services "Building Sac Youth for Success" initiative which encompasses all NSD youth programs. The #SacYouthWorks Youth Internship program is a four-week summer program focused on placing Sacramento Youth in internship opportunities in the public and private sector.  This internship program will provide youth an opportunity to develop a positive work ethic and skill development that will help improve their performance in a work environment. We are looking to place up to 100 Sacramento youth ages 16-24 years old in internship opportunities.

There are three separate cohorts for the internship program from June to August 2017. The internship program will be from Monday - Thursday with applicants completing nine hours of internship work per week. Schedules may vary by internship placement.

1st Cohort: June 5 - June 30, 2017
2nd Cohort: July 5 - July 31, 2017
3rd Cohort: July 31 - August 25, 2017

BENEFITS

Supervisors who take in an intern will get the experience of working with youth and training the future leaders of our generation. 

Applicants who participate in the program will gain valuable work experience that can be used to help build their resume, develop life skills, and build networks. Upon completion of the program, applicants will receive a $300 stipend.
