Interns receive a broad range of experiences during their 10 to 15 week internships. Interns will work directly with children and youth by creating and implementing age-appropriate curricula and programs. They will also learn about the management of child and youth centers, including finances and budgeting. Interns enjoy this unique internship opportunity and gain valuable professional skills that will help them in their future careers.
More than 500 interns have gained hands-on work experience in child development centers, school-age programs, and youth programs on active military installations around the world since the first class of interns in the spring of 2010. Over 21% of interns eligible for employment were hired with military child and youth services because of their internships.
We are currently only placing interns with the Air Force. The Navy and the Army are no longer participating in the program.
