Summer internship helps student develop job skills
Kevin Sosa was only 14, but he knew he wanted a job. As a freshman at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, he asked a teacher for help.
“I told the teacher I was ready for work,” said Sosa Bouret , now 15. “I am ready to work, to help pay my light bills and to pay the food.”

He went on to become the youngest student at Reynolds to complete a summer internship with YTP.
