The Internship Program was established in 2014 with generous funding from the family and friends of Jamie Kirk Hahn, a former member of the Board of Directors, to honor her service to The Hope Center at Pullen.

Internships are critical to our youth—they offer access to vital, life-changing skills by providing them with the opportunity to explore new careers, gain work experience and learn more about the professional world. If you or your business are interested in hiring a young person between the ages of 16-24, please let us know. Our staff works closely with the young person to prepare them for the internship and to coach them through the entire process. In addition, we often have matching funds available to provide a stipend to the young person so that, along with learning critical job management skills, they also learn how to budget and plan accordingly. If interested, please send an email to
