Youth Intern Partnership Initiative (YIPI)
MDEAT will host its third Youth Intern Partnership Initiative (YIPI) and kick it off at Florida Memorial University (FMU), 15800 NW 42 Avenue in Miami Gardens. The kick-off will take place Monday, June 20, 2016, from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. and will provide an orientation and a chance for the youth participants to meet employers.
MDEAT’s Youth Intern Partnership Initiative is a six-week job program supported by the Youth Action Committee (YAC), for teens who volunteer with Miami-Dade County Teen Court. MDEAT matches several youth from the Miami-Dade County Teen Court program with local businesses. The teens become Miami-Dade County employees and earn the prevailing minimum wage rate as well as invaluable work experience and money management skills.
