HRACRE Internship Program

HBA recently played a role in the HRACRE Internship program. Our own Alec Yuzhbabenko, Architectural Intern, was a participant in the program and Candi James, Director of Business Development and Marketing, chaired the program for HRACRE.


The 16 interns who participated were employed around Hampton Roads by a variety of Commercial Real Estate industry firms. The program included 6 weeks or more of employment for the interns during which time they were invited to an HRACRE general membership luncheon, 2 lunch and learns and 1 breakfast and learn. To round the program out there was a closing luncheon at the Town Point Club at which time these young people were able to stand and share what they enjoyed about their internship with the employer as well as what they enjoyed about the program itself-a delight to hear their thoughts. And for the grand finale we were able to provide each of these juniors and seniors in college with a small scholarship check to help with school expenses. The interns were surprised and delighted. This was an excellent program and an honor to be affiliated with – thanks HRACRE for the opportunity!
