Innovative internships: Designing careers for youth – (blog)

Youth Design offers high school student in at-risk areas the opportunities to have paid summer job at firms involved in the design sector while pairing the students with senior-level designers as mentors. 

It’s is not just a summer internship or an apprenticeship and it’s certainly “not pushing brooms” said Korn.  The paid model is critical to the program’s success as students need to have a paid summer job in order to contribute to family needs.  Although it took some time, today the student wages are entirely funded by the companies involved themselves.
