Traditional school curriculum prepares students to become educated members of the community. However, for a fortunate few there is something call “internship,” where the young person learns from mentoring and actual work experience.
The program was designed to help young people “gain valuable hands-on experience in their selected career path while developing leadership qualities and skills.”
Through the program the interns have one-on-one coaching sessions and learn to work in a collaborative environments with weekly team meetings.
And they don’t have to worry about rushing across town to attend for attendance.
According to TLT Founder Elaine Smith-Poyourow, “These positions are all remote which allows us to serve many youths, in many locations and inclusive for all.”
TLT’s goal is to allow the interns to “gain valuable work experience, explore a career path, develop and refine skills, fain confidence and build professional relationships.”
The areas that will be available for the internship program include Business Services (Finance), Development, Grant Writing, Graphic Design, Instruction Design and E-Learning, Marketing, Operations (Policies and Procedures) and Social Media.
Available for all teenagers ages 17 and up in Collin, Dallas, Denton, Grayson and Tarrant counties, the internships are free, but you have to apply before the deadline on Monday, August 30.
