A 2015 study found that while girls may outperform boys at school, families and communities’ expectations of their future careers may prevent them from translating educational success into career success.
The Collaboration is designed to give high school girls the opportunity to connect with professional women and explore potential fields of interest through mini externships.
How It Works:
Fill out the application below to tell us about yourself and help us pair you with the right opportunity.
Important Things to Know:
These externships are exclusive opportunities being given to only a handful of students. Please do not apply or accept the opportunity if you are not certain that you can participate.
The current round of externships will be scheduled between April - June. Your participation may require you to take a day off of school.
While this opportunity is being offered to you for free, you will have to arrange your own transportation to and from the work location.
In some cases, you may be paired with a student from another school.
You may be given an opportunity outside of the potential career interests that you identify.
You will be required to participate in a follow-up survey to provide feedback about your experience.
