Having a Communications Coordinator Intern @ Local Investment Toward Employment (LITE)  from the YMCA's Digital Skills Youth Internship Program over the summer was a fantastic support for our organization. The support allowed us to do so much more this summer and Matt our Post-Secondary Grad Intern really did a great job on all of the tasks assigned to him.

The YMCA Digital Skills Youth Internship Program is really a win-win for everybody. The interns benefit by gaining valuable on-the-job experience, developing their skills, as well as giving them meaningful employment related to their academic background. It is also extremely beneficial for the host organizations as it gives them additional resources to complete important tasks.
