YCC-Bend: Internships are Fueling the Workforce

“As a Bend business, we are invested in our community and its youth.  We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring a bright and ambitious youth into our organization every year or two as a prior intern heads off.  Generally we look to high school juniors or seniors, and in some cases college.  Our intern learns the ropes of being in a bustling business environment and contributing to a team, makes a fair starting wage and earns a $500 scholarship to the college of their choice.  And we get an enthusiastic youthful energy around us keeping us all on our toes!  I highly encourage any business to introduce an intern to your team.  Even 10 hours a week or less can make a huge impact on your life (they don’t mind running errands or licking stamps either!) and have a profound effect on them for the long term. ”

 YCC  is a collaborative internship system being developed right here in Bend. By supporting and fostering experiential learning opportunities throughout our community, YCC has simplified the process for education and industry to connect with career relevant opportunities.
