Worthington, MN, YMCA
Jason Gerdes, Class of 2001

The Worthington YMCA is a great place to do a business internship because there is so much to learn. If you are interested in marketing then this would be a great place to gain real-life experience. You’ll get to learn how to create and implement programs and activities, learn how to market your new programs to the public, use many marketing tools to improve customer awareness, and you will get to attend board and finance meetings. Not only will you learn how to market programs, you’ll also become well rounded by learning the managerial and financial aspects of the YMCA. Overall, this internship will help you grow personally and professionally.
