It has been an absolute privilege to have been involved with TIPS for nearly 10 years now and I can tell you, whole heartedly, that one of my highlights each spring is interviewing and helping to select and place the summer's next class of interns. Each year I sit in awe of these young leaders as they make signifcant impacts on their communities, forming life long bonds and new perspectives.
All this and the growth we've acheived within the program only happens with your generous support. The number of interns we're able to place each summer is wholly dependent upon your support.
Our primary fundraiser is our Fall Luncheon. Normally we look forward to gathering over a delicious lunch to hear inspiring accounts of the past summer and spreading the TIPS message. Well, these are anything but normal times. To stay safe this year, we're holding our luncheon virtually. The good news is that, no matter where you live, you get to hear about the amazing work done this past summer by our incredibly resilient class of interns from the comfort of your home.
So, I invite you to be moved and inspired with me on October 22nd from 12 - 1pm PDT.
If you would like to learn more about TIPS and our program I'm including a link to a short video featuring our Executive Director, Camille Reynaud.
Empowering teens, developing resilient leaders.
Teens In Public Service (TIPS) hires vetted high school students to carry out paid summer internships at nonprofit organizations; empowering teens to give back to their community while developing leadership skills that will last a lifetime. TIPS bridges the gap between not-for-profit funding and teen career exploration.
With your generosity, we can raise funds to support opportunities that benefit our community by connecting charitable causes with reliable teen interns.
Every dollar raised goes towards the intern wages and administration of the TIPS Summer Internship Program. Your donation directly helps TIPS hire more teens committed to supporting their community through summer-long internships at charitable causes.
