High School Senior Projects 

Each Spring  High School Seniors from around the region complete Internships at the Y.  During these placements, students develop an understanding of workplace culture and career paths in our organization.  These Projects are traditionally, 4-8 weeks in length beginning in early April through May.   While spending time with a Y professional, students have the opportunity to participate in projects to gain hands-on experience.
