YMCA Intern Challenge heats up

Posted: Updated:

The competition heats up between two teams in the YMCA of Rock River Valley's Intern Challenge.

Just like in Donald Trump's popular show "The Apprentice", contestants work together on projects for local businesses. At the end of the week, their presentations are judged in board room sessions. This week's assignment was with Entré Computer Solutions and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce. Interns created public service announcements for the Chamber. Contestants on the winning team moved one step closer to a paid internship with the YMCA's CEO, Mike Brown.

Brown says the Challenge has two purposes, "... to kind of revitalize our own city and let young people be a part of that process. It's also an opportunity for me to find an intern that would help me throughout the year."

Current contestants are all high school and college students. There will be another competition next year. If you are interested in applying, you can contact Mike Brown directly at mbrown@rockfordymca.org
