The Career Connect Internship Program

The labor market remains a challenging place for many college students. Employers seek to hire those with previous work experience, yet, for young adults, this presents a frustrating paradox––how does one gain experience if previous experience is required? The Career Connect Internship program seeks to resolve this conundrum. Students with minimal or no previous work experience are afforded a chance to work with a fully-vetted organization, while receiving an educational grant and course credit toward the completion of their degree.

Finally, experience and its following success is within reach.

The program connects ambitious undergraduate students with fully vetted nonprofit organizations in multiple states throughout the West Coast, affording them the opportunity to achieve amazing success, grow professionally, and earn an educational grant.
