Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP)

The Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP) provides opportunities for youth ages 16 - 24 who are not currently enrolled in school and not currently employed. Through an eleven week internship at various companies and organizations in NYC, YAIP provides youth with the experience and skills needed to make a successful transition into adulthood and economic self-sufficiency. Participants also receive assistance with pursuing educational options, including placement into a HSE/GED program and/or help with enrolling into a two or four-year college.  Past internship sites include:

  • IKEA
