Project Youth Extension Service (YES!) is now accepting internship applications for 2014-2015.
Project Y.E.S! is a Department of Defense funded national internship program engaging college students in service to meet the needs of military families. Specifically, Project Y.E.S! expands the resources of the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) and other youth & teen oriented programs. Staff interns are provided an opportunity to give back to their communities and country while gaining invaluable practical and career-enhancing experiences. Since 2011, we have supported youth events in 42 states and 4 US territories and proudly supported over 9.000 youth.
Through our partnership with the General H. Hugh Shelton Leadership Center, interns are provided first-class youth development educational and facilitation skills. In turn, they travel the nation delivering youth programs at Yellow Ribbon programs, summer camps, leadership summits, and other family programs. Project YES! also serves as a career development program. Staff interns are provided dedicated mentors who assist in the exploration and development of their career goals and in the completion of a career broadening learning project. This is all accomplished while meeting the critical needs of communities with high rates of families impacted by deployments and other military related absences.
Openings are available for summer (Jun-Sep) and full 1-year internship opportunities. Program brochures are also attached.
Applications will be accepted through Feb 28, 2014 and students will be notified of the status of their application by April, 2014. More information and application materials can be found at http://militaryfamilies.extension.org/yes-intern-program/application-requirements/.
