Summer Internship 2021

Inspiring the next generation to give their time and talents, Teens United activities are designed to engage teens, ages 13-18, in volunteerism and education to see firsthand the opportunities to make a difference in our local community.

It is also a great way for students to complete service hour requirements.

About the Internship

Students will complete a 32-hour internship from July 12-22. Throughout the internship experience, students can expect to:

· Develop an understanding of the different positions within nonprofit organizations

· Share experiences and learn from one another while developing their personal communication skills

· Widen their understanding of the needs of the clients served by United Way partner agencies

· Receive invaluable, hands-on training and experiences that help to grow their workplace skills
