Youth Action is a youth-led Philadelphia community development organization operated solely by high school and college students that works to empower young African Americans to become socially, economically, and civically aware. We believe that through organizing innovative youth captivating service events, we can challenge our peers to become agents of social change in their communities.

Intern with Youth Action

Youth Action is very excited to offer internship opportunities for undergraduate college students who are interested in learning more about the practices of non-profit administrations.

An internship with Youth Action offers students an incredible opportunity to contribute to the team’s civic engagement initiatives and mission objectives while gaining valuable experience in non-profit organizational development.

Specifically, we are seeking individuals for an internship in one or more of the following areas:

  • Finance (Fundraising, Grant writing, Sponsorships)
  • Non-profit Governance
  • Marketing
  • Public Relations and Communications
  • Junior Youth Action (JYA)Program Development/Enhancements
  • Recruitment

Internships may be completed during any time of the academic year, for various lengths of time. However, we do prefer students who can commit to two semesters. All applicants should have at least 18 weeks to spend on their internship.

Currently, all internship opportunities are unpaid. Therefore, hours are flexible and tasks are project-oriented. In other words, you will have the flexibility to create your own schedule of 6-8 hours a week to complete projects. All projects will be assigned with appropriate deadlines.

If you would like to find out more information about internship opportunities, please call 1(888) YOUTH-90 ext.906 or email
