Youth studies experiences lead to jobs

Paul Shanafelt and students at The Garage Alumna Sara Jo Lehrer leveraged her youth studies internship at Patrick's Cabaret into a post-graduation position as communications and volunteer coordinator. Now she's putting her degree to work by developing youth programming at the community theater. Likewise, Paul Shanafelt, turned a sound engineering class that he created during his internship into an ongoing position at teen-run music venue, The Garage.

Find out more about youth studies undergraduate opportunities in, "You're Hired," found in the Winter 2011 Connect.
