Since 1997, San Francisco YouthWorks has been providing high school juniors and seniors with internships throughout city government departments. Despite the challenges brought on by COVID-19, this summer our internships will continue on: virtually! We know you’ve probably become professional Zoomers by now and while a virtual internship may not replace our in-person programming, we are certain it will help you develop leadership and job skills.
For all our participants who will be embarking on their first virtual internship, we wanted to let you know this is our first time too. While our Employment Coordinators and Mentors will be supporting you online, you will still be working on meaningful projects and exploring careers in public service like the interns before you. You’ll also get a chance to hone your remote working skills which will be imperative in the workplace. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
