What our interns have to say:UEF Summer 2016

“Youth Life Remix showed me how impactful it can be for students when they have someone that believes in them. Secondly and probably most importantly, it displayed to me that even though at times behavioral and other problems may be stressful, it’s important to realize the backgrounds the students have and work with them, showing them you’re there for them no matter what may happen. It is through these bonds that tremendous and beautiful growth can and will happen.” -Matt, 2015 Intern

“Throughout my experience at Youth Life, the most memorable moment was when I realized that the kids appreciated us being there. It was great to be able to have an internship that made a difference in the community.  And I can’t forget to mention the kids were hilarious.” -Michaela, 2015 Intern

“I had the best time bringing students to the YMCA for the swimming elective I taught. I remember how excited they were when I showed them some YouTube videos of my favorite swimmers and getting excited about their improvements!” -Amalia, 2014 Intern
