YBC Becomes Intern Omaha

A new program gets a new name. This year the YBC program started in Millard as a partnership with Avenue Scholars to place students in meaningful, paid internships in their senior year. The demand was strong, with 200 students applying for 30 available positions. As the program prepares for its second year, it is changing its name to Intern Omaha - Youth Business Community Partnerships. More opportunities will be added, and the program will expand to additional school districts. Know of a business that would be interested in an intern?
