Enterprise For Youth
Enterprise For Youth is a non-profit organization that offers a wide range of internships to high school students. They cover almost every field imaginable, ranging from arts to medical to tech. The interns also get introduced to a variety of professionals from different positions, and even get a chance to work with them! Places like Kaiser Permanente, Salesforce, and SFMOMA often collaborate with Enterprise For Youth to create amazing opportunities for students.
Enterprise hosts many events that expose students to the outside world, and involve them in the community. Events like career panels, career exploration, events with the San Francisco mayor— all of them are open to anyone who wants to join.
Over the course of the pandemic, they have continued to offer virtual internships over Zoom. All events and meetings will be held the same way, so it is easy and accessible by everyone.
