Seattle Youth Employment Initiative


...internships provide a valuable opportunity for youth to explore career paths and develop professional skills needed to thrive beyond school?

"My internship gave me the opportunity to build my network, along with the chance to see a field of work I wouldn't be able to get to do on my own which I am extremely thankful for."

- Summer Intern 2017


  • Support local youth, 16-24, as they prepare to enter the workforce for the first time.
  • Join a network of public, private, and non-profit organizations making a direct impact in the community by hosting or sponsoring internships for local-area youth.
  • Experience the benefits of:
    • giving staff management experience supervising interns
    • implementing new ideas through fresh eyes
    • fostering a workplace culture of mentorship and inclusivity
    • receiving extra help on relevant projects
