In the last two years, Project Y.E.S! (Youth Extension Service) has served more than 6,900 youth in programs focusing on leadership, resiliency, life skills, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Project Y.E.S! college interns receive incredible leadership and facilitation training as they serve as facilitators for youth development programs on weekends as the youth’s parents prepare for deployment.
Project Y.E.S! interns are college juniors, seniors and graduate students. Interns work with assigned professional mentors throughout their year of service and complete career-enhancing projects.
Applications are now being accepted for these internships until February 28, 2013: http://militaryfamilies.extension.org/yes-intern-program/
