In need of donations after receiving an influx of applicants
This year the program has received 337 applicants who have expressed a need for a paid summer internship.
The number of applicants are too telling of the great interest and needs of young people. Unfortunately, the program is faced with restricted resources and can only provide 40 paid internships. To meet the needs of young people, Fresno EOC is asking for donations from the community, public, businesses, and private entities to expand the number of paid internship opportunities provide this summer.
