The Mission of AZYouthforce is to provide teens with training and paid internships that prepare them for the workforce, to ensure all youth have options for their future.
All interns attend the AZYouthforce Academy before being placed in their internships. The Academy is 30 hours of soft skills training. Soft skills include:
· Resume writing
· Public speaking
· Customer service
· Financial literacy
The Academy is 3 Saturdays in a row. There is one Speed Networking event held on a weeknight.
Interns also explore pathways for education and careers while in the Academy. They attend worksite tours and work with Internship Managers to create a plan for their future.
Every internship we offer is paid. AZYouthforce offers two internship tracks:
- Team Based
- Career Based
