Intern talk

“My skill set has grown immensely in my internship because it was first real time being inside a business and seeing just how much needs to be done to keep everything running. It is a lot more than just paying the bills to keep the lights on.”
Allison, Eastern University 2014

“I decided to fly across the country to work with Yes! And... Collaborative Arts because, in a footnoot of a book that shared about the organization, I caught a glimpse of how they honor and empower the precious imaginations of youth throughout their community. When I joined Yes! And... for a summer, I was not dissapointed! I came to a better understanding of myself, and was graciously welcomed into a community of artists and educators who are passionate about using imagination, theatre, and play to create a thriving, vibrant space for young people to explore their impact on the world around them.”
Heather, George Fox University, 2012

“You were fabulous at recognizing each of our strengths and playing off them. I’m glad to have had the chance to play with you all. I want to thank you for creating a space where I noticed young people being respected, empowered, and trusted to create magic.”
Kelsey, Pendle Hill 2011

“Most of all, you listened to my feedback and valued my experience. In my opinion, that is what is most important. I felt as if I was a member of the team. Thank you for everything.”
Adam, Eastern University 2009
