Project Overview: Mission Zero has the goal of employing at least 12 interns per semester, and currently there are 10 on payroll. These interns are part-time employees that are empowered to lead a Mission Zero project. They are given a budget and resources to implement the project and create marketing content around it. They also lead our student volunteers and guide them on getting involved with Mission Zero on campus.
Impact: These interns gain valuable experience in leadership and implementation, in addition to the opportunity to add a meaningful project to their resume. Interns and volunteers are also the lifeblood of Mission Zero’s connection to the student body. Interns are paid $25/hour, up to 10 hours/week, which is intended to also help subsidize tuition.
Sponsor Benefits: This program is hands-on training for students to get a taste of a “real-world” startup and nurture their leadership skills to prepare them for the job market. This creates a highly curated and vetted group of potential employees and networking for the students.
