Youth Development Leadership Program
Each year, we select interns from some of the top colleges in Tennessee for our paid Youth Development Leadership Program. We strive to give college students the experience, skills, knowledge and networking opportunities to succeed in careers upon graduation. Interns will apply for one of the focus areas below for the opportunity to work in our After School Program with elementary students in Knox County. Students are eligible to receive college credit during their time with our program.
Why intern for the Y?
What sets our program apart is the educational learning opportunities interns receive from YMCA of East Tennessee executives. During the course of our program, interns will participate in presentations taught by our CEO, COO, VP of child Care Services, and Health and Well-being Coordinator. The combination of gaining on-the-job experience working at one of our After School Child Care sites and obtaining valuable career-oriented knowledge from our YMCA of East Tennessee executives gives our interns a college credit approved experience that will coincide with their academic education.
We invite you to join us in this amazing work—to develop your skills, to realize your leadership potential and to discover a career that is so much more than a job.
