On The Ground Ypsi: YCS @ Work Preps Students To Pursue Dream Jobs

Sep 13, 2017

Each week, WEMU is sitting down with Brianna Kelly from Concentrate Media to discuss their latest work on the "On The Ground Ypsilanti" project.

Today the conversation is about a program within the Ypsilanti Community Schools, YCS @ Work, which for the last two years has been partnering high school students internship opportunities that align with their career interests with the goal of exposing students to different careers and posibilities. Patrick Campion chats with OTG's  Brianna Kelly and Kharena Keith,  YCS' coordinator of Wellness and Community partnerships.
