Doylestown, PA (July 7, 2017) – Fourteen college students from Bucks County have been chosen to participate in Foundations Community Partnership’s 2017 Summer Youth Corps, which offers paid internships at local non-profit human service agencies in Bucks County serving children, youth and families. The program provides students the ability to gain practical experience while helping to effect positive change in the community by working at non-profit human service agencies.


This is the 10th consecutive year that Foundations has offered the internship program. Non-profit agencies have the benefit of additional helping hands and the students gain meaningful work experience with groups that are making a difference in Bucks County, as well as earning college credit through a partnership with Bucks County Community College.


“Through our relationship with Bucks County Community College, students are able to really experience service-learning, a form of experiential education in which students learn to solve community problems and achieve real objectives for the community while earning college credits,” said Ron Bernstein, Executive Director of Foundations Community Partnership. “Many of our Partnership in Education winners have been selected for the Summer Youth Corps so they can continue their community service work.”


Field Supervisor Julie Tokar leads this year’s Summer Youth Corps. A Yardley resident, Julie is currently a social work graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. To read the full story click here
