Why Your Creative People? 

At Your Creative People, it's the people that make us what we are. We hire creative minds with a passion for design and a penchant for outside-the-box thinking. Our internship program fosters the gifts of creativity and provides real-life working experience.

What Makes Our Program Different? 

The goal of our internship programs is to train you – the next generation of designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Experience is essential and for this reason we provide real-life agency experience as you work side by side with our team, for our clients.

Each intern is treated with the same respect as an actual employee. We want to hear the perspectives of our interns, and allow them to develop their individual creative style and leadership skills while benefiting from the experience of the whole team. 

What Can You Expect To Learn? 

Our interns – in both the design and entrepreneur track – get exposure to multi-channel marketing as we teach you how to create brand awareness for companies, start and operate a creative agency, and market services and products to clients.

Benefits of Our Program

  • Interns will be personally mentored one-on-one by experienced designers and managers.
  • Interns will gain a working knowledge of how to brand a company on both the web and in print.

Working along side the YCP team for several months was an invaluable experience. Encountering real-world projects, deadlines, client meetings, and the buzzing creative office environment will teach you far more in a short amount of time than you could learn in a classroom. Embrace the challenge.

Interning with YCP was an incredible experience for me that went far beyond classroom learning. I had the opportunity to really seek out my strengths and my weaknesses and grow in many ways. The team members at YCP were always quick to challenge my thinking, but also eager to help me improve. I really appreciated my time with them as an intern, and would highly recommend their internship program to anyone who is seeking more experience in the field of marketing!

My internship at Your Creative People exceeded my expectations in every way. I was not just an intern, I was welcomed as part of the YCP family. Because of that, I learned so much more than I could have had it been any other way. I learned about communication and teamwork. I learned about design and Google Analytics. I learned about having fun and working hard. But most of all, I learned that to truly succeed in your line of work, you must care about people. Their care for people is what makes YCP different. And I believe that this philosophy is what made my internship so memorable. Because I knew the YCP family cared about me, I felt free to ask questions about things I didn’t understand and to give my opinion on things they asked me about. Overall it was a wonderful experience in which I learned many valuable skills. Skills I have already been able to put to use.
