Ujima Internship Program

Shaping Futures: The Villas Internship Program

To provide high school students, residing in the Town of Babylon, a unique opportunity to participate in local government through hands-on training and mentorship, thereby fostering their interest in community development and providing an introduction to the myriad of occupations needed to effectively promote community/ neighborhood interests.

Dominican Village had the privilege of hosting the Ujima Internship Program student’s dinner celebration for the completion of their internship program.

The students were supported by community members as well as Town Councilman, DuWayne Gregory and his local constituents.

The community & Political support along with the student’s energy and smiles I observed this evening was amazing and made me proud that Dominican Village was part of such an amazing community.
