YWiB Resource- Internship Program One of YWiB’s pillars that we base our events and ideas on is providing resources. Now, I have to admit, that’s a pretty broad statement. Let me share with you the newest resource we are offering, and why I’m so excited about it: the YWiB Internship Program. We’re offering up some incredible resources (our network + ourselves!) and asking you to join is on the ride.

What is an internship? “Any official or formal program to provide practical experience for beginners in an occupation or profession.”

The YWiB internship is a new, and yes, official program, that we are launching for our team moving forward. We believe that the practical experience that you get, and the amount of hard work you will put into your position, warrants the title of an intern. The occupation? Well, that one's easy. We're all in the profession of defining success and working towards getting the skills to achieve it- that's what YWiB promises to provide you with in return for your dedication and continuous growth with us.

The internships are unpaid, however the tangible benefits you will gain are: YWiB membership for the duration of your internship, technical advice for the area you will be working on, access to YWiB network, exposure to a non-profit startup organizational structure, and a heck of a lot of fun. At the end of your internship, you will also receive a letter of endorsement from our Board of Advisors and Directors- talk about having great people behind your back! We're essentially asking you for knowledge philanthropy: the donation of one's knowledge, skill and experience to move an organization closer to its mission.

Not your typical volunteer position, eh? If you like to be a rockstar at work and think gold stars are the best reward you could get- join our team! We’d be honored to have you on board and are stoked to make some magic happen together. Check this out for more info.
