YTAC Fall Internship Program Application

Are you a current high school student interested in technology and looking for an internship that will pay you $25/hour to code and play e-sports?! No previous experience required, see below for more information!

During the past four cohorts of the YTAC program, our students have had amazing opportunities to interact with leaders in the fintech industry, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Barings, and LendingTree. Our students have also had the opportunity to share their skills and talents, competing in a variety of competitions of different focuses, such as programming, game design, digital marketing, and digital art.

When CFH brought Robinhood to Charlotte, our students used their creative digital art skills to make designs welcoming the firm to Charlotte.

When we partnered with Epic Games to hold a game development competition, our students used programming and design skills to build their own games from scratch in just a matter of weeks.

Cohort Three 1st Place Winner

When our students made their own game design studio, students worked to 3d model game assets, design game soundtracks from scratch, create digital renderings, and write storyboards.

Our students represent an amazingly diverse group that boasts equally diverse talent. Both the accomplishments of our students and relationships with leaders in the fintech industry are reasons why we are excited to continue our internship program, which launched this summer, with a two-week fall internship program for Charlotte-area students. Students are encouraged to apply at the form attached below. The program will run from November 8 to November 19 during after school hours. Our partner firms for this cohort are Atrium Health and Movement Mortgage. Students will be placed at one of these firms.

Students are paid $25 an hour, gain real-world internship experience with a leading Charlotte-area firm, grow their technical proficiency while completing a group project that they will present directly to the executives of their employer sponsor.

Deadline: Internship Applications must be submitted before midnight of Wednesday, Nov 3.
