The LightHouse Transition and Employment Services Program hosted 6 youth interns this summer for our Business Enterprises Program–Youth Employment Program (BEP-YEP). These youth, between the ages of 16 – 21, completed a 5 and 6 week long internship program, working 5 hours a day within specific departments at the LightHouse.
On Fridays, participants engaged in peer support activities, career exploration workshops and other activities to strengthen their employability. This summer, our interns were:
Jasen Nixon: Business Services Department Intern
Olinda Alvarado: Business Services Department Intern
Kacie (Acacia) Capello: Adaptations Store / VLRC Intern
Quincy Taylor: Reception Desk Intern
Chris Sung: Youth Program Intern
Austin Sanchez:Office Intern
Congratulations on all the hard work and great job everyone!
