Community Investment

YouthForce jobs are unique because of our internship partner sites.  Partner companies open their doors and welcome teen interns into their organizations to learn job skills and expand their networks while performing basic key tasks that support the business.  Partner companies, who invest in YouthForce interns, build pipelines of entry level talent, increasing the community ties of business. 

We are proud to partner with these innovative businesses and we are grateful for their investment:
