Are We a Good Fit for Your Internship?

What Kind of Experience Can You Get with an Internship at FYP

Welcome to our community! As an intern we are pleased to have you on board with us. Our mission is totally dependent on your generous help and support. It is of the utmost importance to us that everyone involved with Freedom Youth Project (FYP) feels welcomed and protected in the best way possible. In order to protect our mission, the youth that we come in contact with, our volunteers, and you the intern, we ask that all volunteers, interns, and employees of FYP adhere to a Code of Conduct. Our work protecting youths and serving victims is important and we need and want your best.  This includes your best attitude, your best behavior, your best cooperation and your best abilities. In return for your best, our goal is to provide you with work that gives meaning to your life, and provides you experience in being part of a solution to a serious issue facing youth in America.
