During the fall months, the Pasadena Jaycees are proud to offer the Youth Intern Program! This program aims to give citizens under the age of twenty-one a chance to develop leadership and networking skills through our community service projects that will benefit them as they prepare to join other organizations and the workforce. Interns observe board and committee meetings and volunteer with Jaycees and like-minded students to get an understanding of how projects are organized and how a non-profit organization is managed.
Students will focus on the Pasadena Jaycees’ two most prestigious community service projects — Operation Gobbler and Operation Santa. Meetings and volunteer events begin in late October. Program duration is two months, from the end of October through December. In the early part of the new year, an awards luncheon will be held in their honor.
Community Service (20 hours + 24 optional hours):
Meetings (3 hours + 2 optional hours; held on weekday evenings):
Each Intern will write a Project Management Guide (PMG) as a proposal for a new Pasadena Jaycees project. Guidelines and due date will be discussed at the Info Session and Orientation meetings. Approx. time commitment is 1-2 hours.
Jaycee Interns who complete the program will have an option to participate on a special committee to plan and execute a new project. This committee will meet several times between January and March to make an impact on the local community.
