Youth in Dallas Program Completed Their First Corporate Internship!

For the youth in our Dallas program, a paid internship is a vital experience that exposes them to new employment opportunities, a professional network
of female leaders, and a pathway toward furthereducation, specialized certification, and career planning.

Hilti Corporation is a multinational company that strives to create sustainable opportunities for individuals from under-resourced backgrounds. Not only was Hilti filled with female leaders who met each intern where they were, but they offered ten internship positions in various roles with competitive wages. This was a fantastic opportunity for the youth, many of whom come from households where the adults only make minimum wage. For one client, there is an opportunity for a future full-time position that includes childcare. This is a precious necessity as the lack of childcare is a significant employment barrier for the populations we serve. We are thankful to have partners like Hilti who look beyond the challenges and embrace the nuances of serving justice-impacted youth. Hear what the interns had to say.
