YouthWork Internship Program

Host A Summer Intern

The Durham YouthWork Internship Program offers Durham youth ages 14-24 the opportunity to gain work experience and develop skills through paid summer internships in local businesses, nonprofits and City and County government.

The program operates through a partnership of the City of Durham, Durham County, Durham Public Schools, Durham Workforce Development Board, Durham Technical Community College, Made in Durham, My Brothers Keeper and the Raleigh-Durham Electrical Joint Apprenticeship Training Council.

YouthWork is a core component of the education-to-career system being created by business, education, government and nonprofits partners through the Made in Durham partnership. The initiative aims to create a system of career pathways and supports that enable all Durham youth to graduate from high school, earn a post-secondary credential and secure living-wage work by age 25.
