ABOUT THE PROJECT
Fewer than half (41%) of college students feel well-prepared for their future careers, according to a recent McGraw-Hill survey. When asked what would have made them feel more prepared, the largest percentage of students (51%) responded with “more internships and professional experiences.”
3C is partnering with Women In Cloud to advance economic access and help youth to find adult mentors to start their tech careers.
We are developing an innovative STEM-Based Micro Internship Project for youth to help them jump start their careers in the technology sector, foster leadership, self-confidence, and connect to professional mentors to increase their network value.
Our Micro Internship Program is run by youth for youth between the ages of 15 – 20 from all backgrounds. Students receive structured, access cloud trainings, mentoring and advice from experienced technology professionals.
A micro-internship, or six-month virtual youth internship, can help narrow the STEM internship access gap. They usually consist of 40-60 hours of high quality work, and can occur any time of year. They are highly-specific, project-based positions, often in arenas like events, research, or technology solutions. Students receive a fixed stipend of $1000 per project, and adult mentor to guide them through their internships.
HOW TO APPLY: This is an exclusive interactive experience and something you do not want to miss, so make sure to apply now!
