North Miami, FL – 8/3/2017

The City of North Miami is pleased to announce that Miami-Dade County Public School Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho, will be the keynote speaker at the City’s 2017 Youth Opportunity Board (YOB) Summer Intern Luncheon, on Tuesday, Aug. 8.  

Before an audience of 27 YOB Interns, North Miami elected officials and staff, Carvalho’s address will focus on “Developing a Personal Success Plan.” The program also will feature testimonials by current YOB Interns.   

For more than three decades, the City of North Miami has maintained its tradition of offering the City’s youth paid summer internships through the YOB Program. The objective is to expose youth to a professional workplace, provide resume-building experiences and an early-career advantage.   

For seven weeks, interns were assigned to North Miami’s 18 departments and divisions. Through hands-on experiences, YOB Interns learned the inner workings of their local municipal government and made meaningful contributions to the City’s daily operations. Prior to starting this year’s program, many YOB Interns completed the City of North Miami’s Leaders in Training Program (LIT) to learn soft skills necessary to thrive as City interns and in any professional environment.   

Funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the city of North Miami, the YOB sponsors this annual program, available to all eligible applicants, with a special focus on youth from low income households. Eligible applicants must be currently enrolled in high school or recent high school graduates. Applicants must also reside in the city of North Miami and be at least 16-years-old.   

The YOB Internship Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from noon – 2 p.m., at the Joe Celestin Center, located at 1525 NW 135th Street, North Miami.
