Project Y.E.S (Youth Extension Service) funded through the USDA/DOD Military Family Partnership is helping to develop our next generation of professionals for public serving careers, including, but not limited to: extension, state agencies, military family programs, non-profits, etc. Now going into their second year, our college interns receive incredible leadership and facilitation training as they prepare to serve as facilitators for youth development programs we conduct for military youth on weekends as one or more of their parents prepare for deployment.
We annually hire 20-24 college interns from across the United States. Encourage some of our very talented youth in undergraduate and graduate programs who would enjoy this exciting learning experience as a compliment to the educational experiences they are getting at their institution. It is a great learning/work experience, an opportunity to travel on weekends and a chance to earn some extra money.
Please direct your questions regarding this program to J.C. Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org). J.C. serves as our Project Director and does an incredible job of mentoring and guiding our interns through their internship.
