TeamWork Internship Program

The TeamWork Internship Program is a unique partnership between YouthForce and First and Goal Inc. that offers teens meaningful entry-level work experiences supported by adult mentorship, positive peer and professional networks, and on the job training. TeamWork Interns work as Fan Support Staff at CenturyLink Field and play a key role during Sounders FC and Seahawks games:  teens distribute fan giveaways, manage spectator services, and operate family activities held across the stadium.
