Our Solution

 

It is imperative that we fund more paid internships, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes sense from a financial standpoint. According to a survey done by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, students with paid internships receive higher salaries than students with unpaid internships. With their higher salaries, those students can then contribute more to society, returning the initial investment made in their experiential education. If we want to have a competitive workforce in the coming decades, we need to invest in more paid internships for millennials.
