Internships

Tarik Black Foundation presents
SPORTS CAREERS and Summer GLAM

SPORTS CAREERS and Summer GLAM internship programs are six weeks of interactive sessions and field trips for the 50 interns. Youth are hired by Memphis’ summer youth employment program, MPLOY to participate. (For details about how to apply, please visit http://www.cityofmemphisyouth.org/index.html ).

Young men in the Sports Careers internship program participate in sessions and field trips focused on the sports industry profession. Young ladies in the Summer GLAM internship program go through self-awareness workshops, learn decision-making skills, life lessons, and take part in leadership development activities. Throughout both character development, empathy training, and decision-making is an important emphasis

Thank you to Summer 2019 Session Leaders, Staff, and Volunteers
