New York City’s YMCAWe’re here for good.

Teen Career Connection

Teen Career Connection, the West Side Y summer internship program, provides teens with life-changing work experiences at top New York City companies and nonprofit organizations. Now in its 9th year, the 8-week summer program gives students  the opportunity to explore exciting career paths, make new connections, and build a network of professional adults that they would not have the ability to make on their own. After 2 weeks of training led by industry professionals and staff at the West Side Y, the students spend 6 weeks in their placements gaining an understanding of the profession and what it means to have the responsibility of a full time job in New York City.
