This finding focused on the impact of community service year program on interns’ career decision making. The study was conducted in Arusha region in the period of July 2019 to March 2020, consisting a total of 66 interns’ graduates who volunteered for at least 9-12 months between the years of 2015-2018. The objectives of the study were; to evaluate interns’ perception on relevance of Community Service Year Program on their career growth and development, to assess the interns’ career preferences after participating in Community Service Year Program and to identify interns suggested factors to making CSY more successful programme for interns’ career decision-making. The first hand data were collected through structured questionnaires and analyzed by using SPSS where presentation was done in both descriptive and inferential statistics. The study reveals that, the major reason for interns’ engagement in CSY was to help others make difference that was a self-derived motive. In addition, the careers chosen were done with inspirations of teachers. However, interns had low knowledge of specific careers during their high school studies. Despite the fact that, the program had impact on their career satisfactions there was also a high rate of satisfaction on intensive pre-service training. Generally from 2015-2019, CSY program had 376 interns’ who had served at least 65,800 students around the region in the period of 5 years. Keywords: Community Development, Development, Interns and Decision Making.
