LauraPond_ChristineGaydos_GrantMacElhiney_interns2013.jpg"The mission of YEA! is to turn young people into magnificent human beings, and I believe that mission extends to all their educational endeavors, including their summer internship program. I learned valuable skills through unique, hands-on experiences, and I was even given leadership opportunities on several projects and events! My time with YEA! not only helped prepare me for a career, but also taught me valuable life skills including responsibility, teamwork and initiative. I returned for my final year of school as a more confident person, ready to take on the world." - Christine Gaydos, YEA! Marketing Intern, Summer 2013

What It's Like

Don't expect to be filling up the boss's coffee cup. YEA!'s small office environment means everyone plays an important role, and our interns are active members of the creative team. The real-world experience you'll gain is invaluable, but be prepared to work hard among hard workers and achieve great things with us!

Marketing Internships are flexible based on the successful candidates' particular focuses of study and interests, so we encourage interns to let us know how they want to grow as young professionals. YEA!’s Director of Marketing will assign tasks based on the candidate’s personal goals and skill set, and the intern will be entrusted to manage a project all their own in addition to assisting with more general marketing efforts.

The marketing team is always open to creativity, and we'll give you room to make this internship your own. Bring a positive attitude, ideas that reflect your personality and a passion for music and the arts!

"My internship experience with YEA! was better than I could have ever imagined. I felt like a valued member of the team and worked in several areas during the summer including marketing, merchandising, ticketing, development and event promotion. It was so rewarding to work to make sure that the drum corps shows in PA and NJ were the best they could be for both the corps members and fans. This internship allowed me to apply what I learned in school to real-world scenarios." - Laura Pond, YEA! Marketing Intern, Summer 2013
