JUL’s internship takes participants through a true learning experience, with lessons about how to prepare, obtain, keep and turn any job into an investment of time and effort for the future. The internship training component teaches participants how to dress for an interview, how to conduct themselves in a professional manner, how to value their time commitments to a job and how to make the most of their transferrable skills from any such opportunity.

The Youth Employment Services Internship Program (Y.E.S) provides youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 21 with paid summer employment, specifically for a seven-week period between June and July.
