Interns will make a positive impact by not only providing our youth with an opportunity to give back to their community, but will also assist the Branch in strengthening and renewing existing partnerships with SRPMIC entities. Interns will also aid the branch in offering our youth long lasting "mentoring" relationships that will hopefully result in a positive collective self-identity as strong native youth who are willing to give back to their community.
