WorldLink offers a specialized high school internship during the summer, giving youth from both San Diego and Baja Mexico the opportunity to explore global topics in an in-depth manner. WorldLink summer interns research and create the WorldLink Reader, a classroom tool that provides fellow youth with important knowledge on the WorldLink Annual Youth Town Meeting (YTM) topics.

The 2014 WorldLink summer interns, Chase Garcia, Sonya Jacobs, Chelsea Luo, Nicole Martindale, Alexis Parkhurst and Julio Serrano, will present their research on the 2014-2015 student-selected theme, Healing the Wounds of Violence. Student interns will present their conclusions, focusing on five subtopics: Identifying Violence, Healing through Medical and Alternative Therapies, Transitional Justice, Restorative Justice and Violence Prevention.

Light refreshments will be served.
