Youth externships provide our youth with foundational work experiences while they continue to pursue their education, and offer employers extra support for small projects and a chance to strengthen community relationships.

  • Session 2 - April 9, 2018 to April 13, 2018




Join other employers who have worked with Youth Extern!

By participating in Youth Extern, you are providing an invaluable opportunity for our region’s young adults.

Interested young adults fill out an extensive application, and our coordinators conduct a thorough screening process to find the best participants for your organization.

  • Our team will then match the participants’ interests and experiences to your business needs.

Youth Extern participants take part in work-readiness training that addresses communication, professionalism, teamwork and other workplace skills so they are ready for your workplace on Day 1.

An externship gives the opportunity four our youth to explore a specific career path, gain marketable job experience, and make professional connections by working with hosts. The primary purpose of the externship program is career exploration.

Externs will most likely participate in the following activities:

  • Shadowing one or more professionals
  • Attending meetings and presentations
  • Touring the department
  • Conducting informational interviews
  • Participating in daily operations that will provide hands-on exposure to the career field or industry
  • Completing a relevant project, if the externship is long enough

Youth Externs are provided with:

  • Apparel with our logo
