Internship America inspires young people to achieve more, by facilitating rich mentorship connections and an enriching hands-on work experience to spark a student’s aspirational spirit. Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman, and CEO, John Hope Bryant, believes that the daunting reality of America’s current high-school dropout crisis rests in the failure to connect education with aspiration.
The program addresses this shortfall by allowing students to intern directly with executives at a corporation, non-profit organization, or government agency. The objective is to provide an opportunity for students to observe and gain direct experience in leadership and professional development around how businesses manage operations, staff, and resources on a daily basis.
Participants commit to a six-week program duration; 12 hours per week.
