Through the Exchange at Oxford Circle thrift store, Oxford Circle Christian Community Development Association recently launched a five-week summer internship program aimed at training local youth ages 14-18.

The program focuses on retail, marketing and entrepreneurship. Approved applicants are attending workshops that provide information on marketing and financial literacy. Industry experts and entrepreneurs are also speaking to the interns, offering them advice based on their own professional experiences.
