What Is The OmniLYF Career Exploration Program?

Why Should I Do This Internship Program?

Finding high school internships or college internships in your first years is extremely difficult. If you are able to find them, typically they don’t provide you with real-world, practical work that is done by the professionals. In our program we provide you with the exact training you need to be able to complete projects that are done by the professionals in your fields of interest.

What Are The Benefits?

The main benefits include getting real world experience so you know if you want to spend the time and money pursuing that particular career path. Other benefits include building your network, increasing the chances of getting into universities/grad schools, getting scholarships, getting future internships, and future jobs all by building your resume in a meaningful way as well as learning how to interview, negotiate, how to be successful in the workplace, and how to be financially literate. Finally, the program is fun!
