Introduce Your Friends or Colleagues to KIPP
Organize a lunch for your friends or co-workers at your home or workplace. These informational, hour-long presentations have been a valuable way to introduce and enlist a broader group of champions for KIPP.
Provide Our KIPPsters Virtual Support
Individuals can support our students virtually by assisting with resumes, college essays, interview help, etc. This provides our students a great opportunity to receive thoughtful feedback and strengthen their skills!
Become a Mentor for Our KIPPsters
Are you a young professional interested in mentoring someone at the beginning of their career? Do you have professional networks you’re willing to open up to a motivated young person? The KIPP Alumni Mentorship Program connects our upperclassmen in college and recent college graduates with professionals in their field. Our vision is to strengthen KIPP alumni’s social capital through relationship-building, networking, job shadowing, and strengthening basic professional skillsets. Contact Sheyla for more details.
Hire Summer Interns at Your Organization — Summer 2019
Each summer our Bay Area partner companies host recent KIPP high school graduates and college-aged alumni as interns, providing them with essential experiences to explore new career fields and build their professional network.
