The Youth Internships Initiative (YII) has been developed by MMVLLEN to provide invaluable work-experience and employment support to young people who are struggling to find employment. The project will support successful candidates to become job ready by providing internships that will teach practical and transferrable employment skills and business skills. 

Interns will be matched with one of a number of community organisations based on their interests and the needs of the organisation. Interns will work closely with select staff members within the organisation, learning a range of skills revolving around project management.
