Interns kick off summer with barbecue and games

Fifty-six college students and graduates recently arrived in Memphis to take part in Youth Villages’ summer internship program. They kicked off the summer with a barbecue picnic at CEO Pat Lawler’s house. They played games and had the opportunity to meet informally with Youth Villages’ leadership. The interns were selected from more than 1,000 applicants. They come from 26 states and represent 46 colleges and universities. The interns will be working at Bartlett, Dogwood, the Boys Center, the Girls Center, Deer Valley and the group homes in Memphis and Nashville. Their summer will also include several fun activities, such as the annual intern bash at the Bartlett Campus, a game night at the Operations Center and tours of Graceland and the National Civil Rights Museum.
