Summer 2021 YMCA Interns
YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas



The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas Internship Program is a Project-Based internship designed to provide individuals an opportunity to create or develop programs, operational systems, or communication strategies to improve our services we provide to the community. Interns will interact and engage with many of our Executives, Vice Presidents, and Senior Program Directors, attend leadership meetings, engage in professional development trainings, and interact with our customers in the community. Our goal is to provide interns an overview of our organization's daily operations and growth to possible employment.
