OPENING DOORS  We all know that a chance to get a foot in the door is often the first step towards success in any field. Today’s students know that internships can help them get a good look at a particular profession, give them a chance to launch their careers — and offer them a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience and contacts.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANCEMENT  Our Next Generation internship program helps next generation students get the experience they need, by matching their academic interests and career pursuits with mentoring possibilities and internship opportunities in a variety of fields and settings. These opportunities range from informal, one-on-one mentoring, where an individual student gets advice while working in a particular field, from an experienced professional from our network — to formal internships made available through a different office in a network member’s organization.

THROUGH A NETWORK OF MENTORS  Our program offers students access to these opportunities through our NextGen network of career advisors, mentors, internship hosts and sponsors committed to mentoring the next generation. Typically conducted at a sponsor or mentor’s place of work or business, the internships they offer through our programs are open to next generation students with clearly expressed academic or professional interests, and recognized capacities for leadership, service and achievement.
