Applications accepted in May for upcoming Summer
Youth Action Summer Internship (YASI) is an 8-week long program that offers a concentrated summer experience focused on exploring relevant social issues, learning about organizing, engaging in positive identity development, building leadership skills, exploring high school opportunities and college and career options, developing job readiness skills, and becoming part of a team.
Activities during the YASI experience will include experiential and workshop learning. This is not another summer school class or lecture; it is hands-on and interactive exploration. Before the end of the internship, Interns and Staff participate in a delegation trip.
YASI Student Interns are high school youth who engage with the Teen Build Up program and are role models for elementary and middle school youth. The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic about working with other YASI student interns, open to participating in culturally relevant programming, and excited to develop their leadership skills through enriching experiences.
This program is funded in part by Madison Community Foundation.
