A high school internship in entrepreneurship provides a strong foundation in the business world. Our interns are placed in top sectors including green energy, technology, and social entrepreneurship. Each of our partner organizations is a leader in their own field, and interns learn from inspirational entrepreneurs and innovators.
Our marketing internships deliver key skills in social media, blogging, and design. Interns join talented and multi-functional teams, and begin to develop portfolios. The hands-on experience with branding, campaigns and more, makes program alumni competitive applicants in all fields.
Of course, placements with international nonprofits and NGOs are some of our most competitive internships for high school students. The nonprofit sector is incredibly vast, and spans human rights, women’s rights, social justice, and animal welfare, to name a few. Experience with these organizations can be applied to nearly any discipline you may pursue in the future.
