Youth Culture’s FAST-TRACK Internship Virtual Program under our Skills & Development initiative provides week-long internships* and career education to youth ages 15 to 30.

What do you get out of it?

  • Certificate of Program Completion for each one week program
  • Experience to add to your resume
  • Opportunity to network with your peers and industry professionals
  • Be a part of imagining solutions to industry’s biggest problems (reminiscent of a Hackathon experience)
  • Learn relevant professional development skills and workplace etiquette

This FAST-TRACK Internship program was designed for maximum engagement incorporating elements of Hackathon-type problem-solving, professional development in the workplace, networking with industry professionals, and an opportunity to connect with others while gaining relevant short-term experience to add onto resumes. Each week, a specific industry will be highlighted so students can join the weeks that are of interest to their learning journeys.

UPDATE for International Students! We are now accepting International students who have completed the FAST-TRACK International Student Training. Sign-up here to register for the training.

FAST-TRACK Internship Program participants will also be divided into teams to research and present a solution to a real-world problem related to that industry. They will have an opportunity to listen to, and network with, related industry experts. The end of the week will culminate in presentations and pitches of ideas researched.
