Summer 2018 Continuous Improvement Intern
Start building your future
An internship at YFAI is not your typical coffee-making, errand-running internship. Here you will work on real world projects from the beginning. You will develop your talents while we provide you with opportunities to change the world.
Projects with a real world impact.
Each intern is assigned to a manager and mentor who they will work with for the summer. The manager defines a specific project that you will work on for the entirety of the internship. This project is designed to have a lasting impact on the business, and will be judged at the end of the summer during the Intern Expo. This is a chance for you to showcase your individual project to the campus and the executive leadership team. Judges will score each presentation based on business impact, presentations skills and creativity. The Intern Expo gives our company the opportunity to recognize the valuable projects you worked on over the summer and the interns the opportunity to interact with senior leaders.
