this isn’t a goodbye, it’s more like a “see ya later”

Seattle Youth Employment Program is a program run by the City of Seattle, specifically the Seattle Human Services Department. It provides year-round academic assistance or job training to youth of color or lower-income families. It helps it participants graduate from high school and move on to college as well as the job field later on. This diverse body of participants often set academic, personal, and workplace goals to set them up for the future.

The Washingtonbus has had two SYEP interns: Delfina (Developments) and Andy (Communications). Delfina has been doing data entry, managing our finances, assisting in development, doing research, attending bus events and providing program support. Andy has been doing data entry, research, managing/writing for the blog, attending bus events, and developing designs used in major bus events. They have been steady with the bus, but today is their last day of their internship and “we will miss them” (I quote Toby). What’s next for them? They’re both going back to school soon and Andy hopes to stay in touch with the bus…

And yes, this is Andy writing about himself in 3rd person…
