The Durham YouthWork Internship Program (DYIP),  a program of the Durham Workforce Development Board is seeking businesses and organizations to provide opportunities for youth to be exposed to real-world labor expectations. Businesses and organizations can participate in the program by bringing a youth, ages 14 to 21, into their work space for six-to-eight weeks or longer.

DYIP matches organizations with interns year-round with a special emphasis on the Summer Internship Program. The program works closely with Made in Durham, Durham Technical Community College, Durham Public Schools and many other community and industry partners.

Businesses and organizations interested in hiring youth for the summer and/or after-school internships should contact Malinda Todd at (919) 560-4965, ext.15220, by email at Malinda.Todd@DurhamNC.gov , or sign up online by completing a position request form at http://durhamnc.gov/ich/cb/oewd/Pages/position_request.aspx.
