Drexel has also expanded its youth internships commitment. As a partner with the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN), Drexel increased its participation in PYN’s summer internship program by 33% in summer 2011 and placed 23 high school interns throughout the Main and Center City Campus in the summer of 2012, an increase of 21%. Drexel will have 62 high school internships for the summer of 2013. Drexel also participated in PYN’s school-year internship program for the first time in 2011-12. Ten high school students worked on campus from November to May, building a long-term, productive relationship with the University. The interns were recruited from West Philadelphia high schools, maximizing our local impact.
