Internship Developers work to pair young people with internship experiences that align with student interests. To prepare our young people adequately for post-secondary realities the internship program is designed to develop work readiness skills (resume building, financial literacy and money management, interview techniques etc. We currently have students working in a variety of businesses including real estate offices, schools, barber shops, restaurants, clothing stores, and pharmacies just to name a few.
Thanks to your continued generosity, programs like CAMBA’s Learning To Work and College Bound help young people turn their interests, skills, and passions into successful futures.
