Summer jobs can serve as a launching pad to great things. Congratulations to our Youth Connect summer internship program participants, who completed or even extended their placements this year:
- Mai Chue T., intern with ComMUSICation, a program dedicated to empowering youth with lifelong skills through music, service and community.
- Ada B., intern with Shakespearean Youth Theatre, whose mission is to inspire, empower and challenge young people to create groundbreaking theater through education, performance and collaboration. “My favorite part of my internship was getting to do and learn unexpected things. It was a great confidence builder and taught me how to breathe and go with the flow when the unforeseen crops up.”
- Joseph R., intern with YWCA St. Paul’s Building Operations Department.
- Lia L., intern with YWCA St. Paul’s IT Department. “It was a great chance to learn something new and grow professionally.”
And congratulations to Aamira R., a member of the Young Women’s Cabinet, who has secured a graphic design/videographer internship with YWCA St. Paul’s Communications Department!
