New England Division
I realized at my first training there was a quality that those who went through the internship gained that I wanted for myself. I have learned so much throughout this internship. Not only real-life work skills like marking, sales, payroll procedure, customer relations, how to make a business profitable, hiring/ firing employee, production and more, but also and I think to a higher degree I have grown personally. The mentorship I have gotten through YEAA has completely changed the person I am today, for the better. I found confidence I never knew I had. Also, the network of people I have met through this program are truly special and many of them are now my close friends who I hope to work with in my future endeavors. It is a unique collaborative community that I have not found before. I have always wanted to have an entrepreneurial career and with the skills and people I have gained/met at YEAA I now know this is fully possible. I can confidently say I have learned more about business through this internship than any schooling I have had thus far. Nothing beats hands on experience. I am coming back this year as an executive because I have faith in this company, and I know the mentorship that I will receive this year will take me to the next level.
