The student internship program at Youth Advocate Programs, Inc. has two purposes:
- To provide a positive experiential learning experience for aspiring professionals seeking to enter the social service or business field. It provides the opportunity to reality test skills, ideas, expectations, and goals.
- To assist YAP, Inc. in achieving our goals in providing the most effective and efficient services to our youth and families.
As students are provided most of their education through the classroom, it is the philosophy of YAP, Inc. that the primary process for learning in an internship should be through direct experience. Therefore, students doing an internship at YAP, Inc. are given a great deal of responsibility and, where applicable, contact with the agency clientele. This varies according to program assignment, educational program and the amount of time the student has available for an internship.
