You're hired! That's what one student in this year's YMCA Intern Challenge wants to hear at the end of the summer.
The competition just started. In fact, today they had their first board room presentation. The Y's Intern Challenge is modeled after the popular show, "The Apprentice." The 18 students had their first task already. It was to create a brand awareness campaign, s fundraising event and promotional video for the Goldie B. Floberg Center. "Today was difficult because this is their first time so they don't know what to expect, they don't know what the CEO John is going to say in regards to their presentations and there was a very clear winner." The YMCA Intern Challenge started five years ago as a way to create a unique mentorship and training program in the community.
