The CrossPrep internship program is large in scope, in fact it is unlimited. The program covers all major areas of business and includes significant real world philanthropic consulting. Our locations currently include over 100 universities across the US and will eventually expand to global institutions. It's just as important to us as any of our commercial initiatives.
What is Philanthropy Consulting?
Our internship program centers on philanthropic work. Meaning the skills that our interns learn are packaged into consulting programs and offered to organizations that are doing good for people and communities. Philanthropic organizations always need help. Our contribution is to provide skilled interns to consult and tools to create efficiency. The CrossPrep platform is of course the primary tool used to help organize the work.
Note; this is not standard volunteer work. This is about high level strategic consulting and project based deployments.
Choosing a Specialization.
A consulting specialist is an intern who has a diverse or specialized major/skill set/interest, such as computer science, biology, legal, business, architecture, etc... Perhaps a biology major would be best suited to help an organization like the Sierra Club with planning an environmental research project. A business intern might help a national organization with fundraising strategy. A design student might help a local organization with a visual impact project. The types of specializations needed are nearly unlimited.
Choosing a Position Level.
There are several internship levels available, ranging from Director level to Specialist. Director and management levels require some form of managerial experience, and will entail more time for management duties. A Specialist is simply applying very specific skills to our clients tactical needs.
