As the summer approaches, many of the youth you work with may be looking for summer employment and internships. Internships can help youth explore career paths, learn appropriate workplace behavior, and understand how to fit into workplace culture.
Youth Engaged 4 Change, a project of the federal Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs, has launched a series of Web pages about internships. Youth will find internship advice, a list of federal internships they can apply for, and information on how to expand their skills.
We think the direct links to open internship opportunities will be very useful for young people seeking a meaningful summer job.
