Mentor Intern Success Stories

Digital Skills Intern Perfect for Our Needs

Monday, September 24, 2012

In 2012, we participated in the Digital Skills Youth Internship Program administered through the YMCA in Greater Toronto.  Structurally, it is one of the easiest programs we have ever been involved with.  The application process was very reasonable and the staff made it feel as though we were in a real partnership to successfully carry out the program.  In addition, having the payroll done by the YMCA also saved us a lot of time over the length of the contract.
