Project Launch: A Community Internship and Work Readiness Program for Teens

The Launch Pad’s very own work readiness internship program is back! Teens will not only have the opportunity to be placed in an internship with a local business, but explore the tools that will lead to success on the job and in life. The program will be led by Denise Herst, who earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix and her Executive MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business.


The 2019 Workshop Dates are March 2, 23, 30 and April 27th!

The workshops will be held at Yavapai College! Thank you to Yavapai College for supporting youth in our community!
