Is Passion Impact a great fit?

If you enjoy a sense of adventure, learning from and imparting knowledge on those around you, and working in a creative environment towards a mission greater than yourself, this will be the internship program for you.

These internships are for people who have a positive and determined personality. In the startup world, much of the work that is conducted is highly volatile which means that you must be willing to accept failure, learn, and move forward without falling apart. We recognize that saving money wherever we can is extremely important. Sacrificing comfort for our mission means that we are able to make a larger impact with our students.

Our focus for you will be to accomplish the objectives of your internship while at the same time increasing soft skills aptitude. The “Executive Perceptions of the Top 10 Soft Skills Needed in Today’s Workplace” article references a study that “indicated that hard skills contribute only 15% to one’s success, whereas 85% of success is due to soft skills.” With heavy emphasis on communication, integrity, and courtesy, we encourage our interns to also focus on improving three of the top 10 soft skills.

Passion Impact is committed to maintaining a positive and professional environment that is free from any and all harassment and discrimination. Anyone working with, volunteering for, or representing Passion Impact in any capacity should feel safe and comfortable at Passion Impact. It is unlawful, and a violation of Passion Impact’s policy to discriminate or harass an individual based partly or wholly on the person’s race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information or marital status. Any and all harassment will result in either discipline, suspension, or termination of volunteer, intern or employment at Passion Impact.

What do our interns say?

“My internship with Passion Impact made me a better volunteer and more engaged community member. The Passion Impact team creates an environment that fosters creativity, and allows students to develop their position and skills without limitation. I was able to learn new technical and soft skills in just a few months that will be direct benefits after college.” – Nick SP’17

“I’m definitely getting to apply what I’ve been learning [in school] which is helping me build skills and make them stronger…I’ve learned a lot about how to write emails and about how to use the technology that Passion Impact uses.” – Shelby SU’16

“Pushing myself to do what I promise to do.” – Alan SU’16

“I am definitely learning how to use different softwares with developing the donor network. I was expecting to do more donor networking and communicating, but am building the foundation to be able to do that.” – Hannah SU ’16

“Passion Impact helps intern build the skills they need to make a meaningful impact in their personal and professional lives. The work we do positively impacts other students in our communities and helps them find their passions!” – Makaylaa FA’16
