The NYC DYCD funded Intern & Earn Program, formerly known as the Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP), is a 14-week internship program for New York City young adults ages 16-24 who are not working and not in school. Intern & Earn is composed of a 3-week paid orientation conducted by selected community-based organizations followed by an 11-week paid internship that offers structured work opportunities in various industries. This year-round program incorporates ongoing education as well as other participant and employer supports. Upon completion of the internship, the organization will provide nine months of follow-up services and help place the participants in jobs, training programs, or educational programs. Young adults must be a NYC resident and legally allowed to work in the US.
