Teen Career Connection — 5-week Paid Internship

Teen Career Connection is an eight-week professional internship program. Following intensive preparation, participants complete a 5-week paid summer internship at a New York City business or corporation. Interns will receive pre-placement training, ongoing career mentoring, $250 per week in compensation, a $300 clothing stipend, 2-month Metro card and the chance to see their future career from inside the industry that appeals most to them.

To be eligible, applicants must:

–         Permanently reside within the boroughs of New York City

–         Have completed their sophomore year of high school, although cannot have started at a college or university.*

–         Commit to attend the full pre-placement training scheduled for June 27 – July 15, 2011.**

 * This excludes students at early-college high schools.

**Special considerations may be made only for returning Teen Career Connection students who have previously completed pre-placement training within the program, and will participate in popular YMCA programs as Global Teens, and/or college orientations.
