Internship Success Stories

Youth VillagesWhen we hire recent college graduates at Youth Villages it is important that they have experience in the social service field, immediately setting them apart from other candidates. Our internships give students hands-on experience while opening the door for future career opportunities within our organization. Former Youth Villages interns are given priority when being considered for employment because they have the foundational knowledge of our programs. Throughout many of our locations we offer fall and spring internships for credit and a paid summer internship program. Our paid summer internship program here in Memphis brings students from all over the country- combining hands-on experience with an amazing opportunity to meet new people! If you are looking for a challenging and exciting opportunity to make a difference in the lives of youth then apply online today at www.youthvillages.org/internships.aspx.
