C3 Announces Changes To The YRichmond Program

C3 Announces Changes To The YRichmond Program

In 2007, C3: The Creative Change Center (“C3”) created and launched the YRichmond Program, which was designed to help retain and recruit young talent to the Richmond Region.  YRichmond connects summer interns from different companies to each other and the Richmond community; creating raving fans of Richmond, who want to live, work, play, and stay here.  

Each year, C3 organized a 10-week series of 30 events, providing social, professional development and networking opportunities for the summer interns.  Over the last five years, more than 1,100 summer interns from 20 different companies have participated in C3’s YRichmond program. 

In the fall of 2011, the Board of Directors of C3 unanimously voted to give the YRichmond program to the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce (“GRCC”).  C3 has transferred all aspects of the YRichmond internship program to the GRCC, including the rights to the YRichmond name.  The development and implementation of the 2012 YRichmond program will be the sole responsibility of the GRCC. For more information, please visit http://www.grcc.com/YRichmond or contact Caitlin Kilcoin, YRichmond Program Coordinator.

C3 will continue its core mission of being the Richmond region’s creative resource and catalyst.  Now in its 7thyear, C3 will continue producing its other signature events: the monthly C3 Breakfast Clubs, twice a year Talk20 events, C3 ED: Left Brain Advice for Right Brain Professionals series, and other events designed to showcase, foster, and encourage creativity and innovation.
