Join our amazing team this fall. Complete a YNY internship application here by August 10th to be considered for our upcoming session. Interns play a vital role at YNY, working with our small team on a broad range of projects, including: drafting and editing grant applications, engaging with social media platforms (such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram), and assisting with the heaps of administrative work that keeps our organization running. Interns will also contribute to the collective creative process of the YNY team by supporting our Special Projects committees—one which is focused on a publication showcasing program participants artwork, another which is coordinating a public art project to occur in 2016 in collarboation with the youth that we serve. Interns will help us to set up, implement, and run programs, both in the office and in the field.


Applicants should be available to begin by September 7th (though earlier is better), and be available to work on site for 8–16 hours (one or two days, or two or three half-days) per week. The internship will run through the end of the year or semester, depending on your schedule. We are flexible, and are happy to work with you to establish a schedule that works for everyone.

YNY is a small grassroots organization, and offers a pleasant working environment, an engaged team, and the opportunity to connect with artists, educators, and members of the criminal justice community.

Applicants should be organized, have a keen eye for detail, and sharp written and verbal communication skills. A lively interest in social justice or arts programming is preferred. If you have experience or talent with design work (Adobe Creative Suite, etc), or any other special skills, please make that known in your application.
