Intern Program

The Y&G Intern Program is open to recent high school graduates who have a desire to give back to the statewide program in meaningful and productive roles.  Young adults between the ages of 18 and 21 are encouraged to apply for opportunities within the Model Legislature & Court and Spring Conference. They will act as committee advisors, program area assistants, and/or managers within the Intern program itself.

Interns participate in training sessions regarding youth mentorship, presentation skills, professional development (including resume and cover letter workshops), and more. When Interns are not serving the program or polishing their leadership abilities, they’re having fun! In fact, the Intern Program is a great platform for young adults entering the academic and professional world to foster long-lasting friendships with others around the state and beyond.
