UpTurnships' Vision is a workforce that promotes equitable access and opportunity for ALL to thrive.
The Challenge.png

Employers are actively working toward more equitable businesses and a more diverse workforce to
create a culture of inclusion and retain qualified young professionals.
Under-resourced college students often find themselves unequipped to present their education and
experience to potential employers in a way that adequately demonstrates their abilities.

UpTurnships will work to match successful companies who provide culturally inclusive, paid employment opportunities with qualified, motivated and enthusiastic interns who will bring the skills, knowledge and abilities to help create a stronger, more sustainable workforce.
UpTurnships will partner with outstanding organizations and provide them with invaluable training and resources that will help them create a welcoming workspace. UpTurnships will in turn provide a robust curriculum that includes business training, soft skills, networking, financial literacy and coaching, to qualified interns who have met the criteria for and complete our educational program.
When both the business partner and the interns are prepared, UpTurnships will match the needs of the employer with the qualifications of the employees and begin to build the bridges that foster a better, brighter future for all.

"Before UpTurnships I thought, ‘I’ll just go to college, get a degree, get a job.’ I didn’t know how much went into it. UpTurnships completely changed my view of the professional world. Now I have a better idea of what I want to do and UpTurnships helped me build the professional skills and connections to make that possible.”
