Internship Training Program

In 2007, TCT established an Internship Training Program. This program develops young leaders who care about the Teaneck community. Interns complete a 15 hour training program that covers youth advocacy, event planning, community relations, marketing, computer skills, and time management. Equipped with the necessary skills, the interns are then charged with planning, implementing and evaluating at least four youth programs within one year, providing a minimum of 50 hours of community service. TCT has successfully trained our __ class of interns. TCT’s interns have a 100% high school graduation rate, with our interns having attended colleges such as Yale University, Stanford University, Howard University, Rutgers University, Bergen Community College and others.
