VOLUNTEER WITH OUR INTERNS

From February through June, corporate volunteer groups are needed to participate in, or lead, student training to help interns learn and practice skills such as interviewing, creating cover letters and résumés, financial literacy, and networking.

Having the opportunity to learn from and practice these skills with professionals is what makes our interns special. If you or your company is interested in hosting an intern or volunteering, please email Julia Ostroff by clicking the button below!
