The District of Columbia Housing Authority is accepting applications from youth for its annual Do Your B.E.S.T. paid summer internship program.

The seven-week Do Your B.E.S.T. (Building Excellence through Service and Training) program, which provides meaningful summer jobs to youth, ages 14 through 18, living in DCHA properties or who are a part of DCHA voucher programs, is in its 21st season.

The Do Your B.E.S.T. employees work throughout DCHA’s portfolio and also at a number of external sites. Each year, DCHA works to secure more and more positions in companies, non-profits, and outside of DCHA’s portfolio for our youth.

In addition to internships, DYB youth participate in workforce development workshops, community service, and go on a college tour.

Since 1997, through partnerships with more than 260 host sites in private and public sector agencies and organizations, the Do Your BEST program has employed over 1,300 youth.
