Nine college students from Bucks County were chosen to participate in Foundations Community Partnership’s (FCP) 2022 Summer Youth Corps (SYC) program, which offers paid internships at local non-profit human service agencies in Bucks County serving children, youth, and families. The students gain meaningful, practical experience while community nonprofits benefit from motivated, bright college students bringing helping hands to their organization.
