Grigg-Lewis Foundation Summer Workership Program

Provides the funding for college student interns during the summer months (May to August). Their primary role is to develop and present the YMS summer program. Interns gain practical experience, while developing skills in collaboration, effective communication, MS Office, resume building, event planning, office work, and so much more!

College and High School Interns

Every year, college and high school students volunteer their time and energy at YMS. In return, students gain valuable real world experiences in a variety of areas such as marketing, social work, human resources, and teaching. We welcome applicants interested in academic or service internship positions.
