The report, which focuses on the program's operations in DC and Baltimore in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 program years, explains the internship program model and its various components; describes the characteristics of youth participants; and presents findings from dozens of interviews and focus groups with program staff, youth, job mentors, and other stakeholders. An appendix contains a detailed description of the data and methods used during the course of the process study.
