Internships provide students with an opportunity to apply theory to the real world. Youth Development can seem abstract at first, but with an internship, students can better understand the relationship between theory and application.

Junior vs. Senior Year Internships
The CYD program requires an internship in both junior and senior year. The difference between the two is that senior year, the internship is geared toward the concentration of the student's choosing.
**Note that an internship is also a requirement for the minor, though you only need one.
Internships may be obtained through community organizations in collaboration with the college. They can also be self-designed by the student to fit personal goals and aspirations. Every internship must be signed off by the Director of the minor as well as the Director of Internships. The following sites are in collaboration with Nazareth's CYD students.
