Overview

YouthWorks has been providing work-readiness and career exploration experiences and training since 1994. Nonprofits partner with us and benefit from our services. Here are a few comments that help tell our story and illustrate how you may be able to tap into the rich resources we provide:

  • Ready to Work Summer Internship Program

    The extra workers improved services/programs:
    “We were able to process a lot of the materials that typically take forever to process and get to the sales floor. Through these interns hard work, customers from all around the community were able to get materials at cheap costs so that they could finish projects and save money to put towards other needs. This also gives us more space to bring in materials to provide the community”-Construction Junction

    “It’s SO nice to have young people working with older adults—it helps us all feel young! Having YouthWorks interns gives us an extra hand, enabling us to facilitate smaller, numerous groups.”- Vintage Adult Day Services

    Provided us with youth's perspective on programs/services:
    “We get the opportunity to learn more about the youth we target. The young ladies provided much needed input.”-Small Seeds Development

    “Most of the interns in our program were members prior to working at the club. They utilized the skills that they obtained when they participated in our programs and were able to develop additional leadership skills while working with the younger members.”-Boys & Girls Club
