Youth Intern Program 2018 - A Look Back

September 20, 2018

 

“YIP has impacted me a lot. Without YIP I wouldn't have known that some of these wonderful organizations were real. I have learned so much from this program and the things I've learned I will use throughout my life.”

 

These words were shared by Elaine, one of ten youth hired through Right Track to work in the Youth Intern Program at SPNN this summer. Right Track is a program offered by the city of Saint Paul that connects young people to meaningful employment opportunities. Over the course of 7 weeks, these interns explored careers in community media and produced three documentaries in collaboration with our Community Partners - Cookie Cart, Safe MN, and the Youth Climate Intervenors.

Our documentary showcase - the culmination of the project - was held at the SPNN studios in August, and was a celebration of the energy and creativity that the interns put in this summer. The films are now available online, and it is with enormous pride that we share the documentaries produced by the 2018 YIP crew. Check them out below!
