Key Program Components:

- Paid Internships: The program aims to provide paid internship opportunities for participants, based on the availability of funding sourced by the non-profit organization. Paid internships enable students and young professionals to gain valuable work experience while receiving financial compensation for their contributions.
- Unpaid Internships: Unpaid internships offer participants the opportunity to gain valuable experience, network, and contribute to important causes. The program will ensure that unpaid internships adhere to relevant legal guidelines and provide meaningful learning experiences for participants. This type of internship is also provided to students who wishes to undertake school/community hours.

Mentors, who may be assigned to the intern, will offer advice, feedback, and support to help interns navigate their roles, set goals, and maximize their learning opportunities. Regular mentorship meetings and check-ins will be conducted throughout the internship duration.
- Professional Development: The program will complement the internship experience with professional development opportunities. Workshops, seminars, and training sessions will be organized to enhance interns’ skills and knowledge in areas such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving, industry-specific competencies, and career planning. These sessions will equip interns with the tools they need to succeed in their future careers.
- Evaluation and Feedback: Internship performance will be regularly evaluated, providing interns with constructive feedback on their strengths and areas for improvement.
