Flourish PAC founder Mae Whiteside states, "Camryn Clanton is a rising senior majoring in philosophy at Howard University.

If you are interested in more details, please contact the program advisor, Andrea Stuiber at astuiber@imsa.edu .
IMSA Internship Program

Would you or your business be interested in hosting an IMSA student or team of remote/virtual internships this summer? The IMSA Internship Program is seeking opportunities for our talented students to continue their learning and growth around a variety of projects during summer 2020. Your business can offer a meaningful opportunity. As a Business Mentor, you are providing youth empowerment during a difficult and uncertain period.

Our program requires no financial obligation from your business. Our summer cohort begins in June - August and our students are eager to enhance and grow their skills in the following areas:

  • Content Management & Digital Marketing
  • Data Analytics
  • Software Development
  • UX/UI and graphic design
  • Miscellaneous (finance/research, etc).

If you or your company has a short term opportunity, perhaps a low hanging fruit that can be managed by one or more of our gifted and talented future innovators and entrepreneurs, please register your opportunity.
