YouthWorks can work with individual businesses to tailor the internship to meet the needs of the business. The cost for businesses to serve as an internship host site can range from $1,400 - $2,400 depending on the number of weeks and hours worked by the intern. Internships are typically 30 hours a week for 6-8 weeks. Businesses can also sponsor an intern to be placed at another organization if they are not able to host the intern at their organization.
