The Say Yes Internship & Career Pathways Program is committed to supporting our students in helping them enhance their professional development skills and explore future career paths. In light of COVID-19, employers may need to adjust their summer plans.


We are proceeding as if internships are still happening until directed otherwise. All internships currently posted are subject to change and will be removed from the site if they are no longer available. If you apply to an internship that is later unavailable, Say Yes will notify you directly.

Terms of internships are also subject to change, such as start and end dates, hourly rate, and duration. We will most likely have a decreased number of opportunities this summer, so the more you apply to the better chance you’ll have of being hired for a Summer 2021 internship.


Please contact Johanna Caplan at if you have any questions. We are here to support you and look forward to your applications!

For additional information regarding community supports, please review Say Yes Buffalo's COVID-19 Resource Guide.

Please check back weekly for new postings!
