The Event Planning/Project Assistant internship program is designed to immerse students in all aspects of event production and project management. Our interns gain a valuable understanding of many different aspects within producing an event and how they all interact with one another to produce the special event.
Interns will also assist with complex projects (unrelated to specific events) by dividing large project goals into manageable tasks, coordinating project communications, and performing administrative duties on behalf of a team.
Our Interns will interface with YFC staff, volunteers, donors, youth, vendors, as well as other non-profit organizations. Our interns walk away with all of the real experience that event and project mangers face on a daily basis.
