2017-2018 Internships

It’s happening again: the CYC is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2017-2018 internships! The positions will remain open until filled.

We have two internships this year: 1) graphic design / marketing, and 2) social media / writing. Do I want to give up my role as social media / writing intern? No. Do I think it’s cruel I’m required to write a post intended to recruit someone to fill my position? Yes. Yet here I am, because this internship rocks. So why don’t you apply, future-lucky-intern? You’ll love this place and the contribution you will make.

Our Mission

The mission of the Grand Rapids Creative Youth Center (CYC) is to prepare kids for life’s adventures by supporting their writing and amplifying their voices. The CYC is located at 413 Eastern Ave., in the Baxter neighborhood. It runs several after-school programs for kids aged 6-18. At the CYC, kids become published authors, leading to a strong sense of identity and an enthusiasm for learning. Our programs are free for all students attending Grand Rapids Public Schools.

Your Mission

Along with the CYC’s mission stated above, your specific mission is included in the attached graphic design / marketing and social media / writing internships:
