Last Summer, the Windward Network successfully transitioned our internship program to provide virtual opportunities for over 50 participants! This Summer, we look forward to providing over 60 students and alumni with both virtual and in-person opportunities to explore various industries of interest while expanding their professional networks.- Robin Pickett, Director of Windward Network

Internships

Internships offered through the Windward Network provide meaningful experiences for current students (rising Juniors and Seniors) and college-age alumni in a variety of different fields beyond the classroom. Participants have the opportunity to gain valuable insights into their industries of interest, develop skills, cultivate professional connections, and strengthen their resumes, all while receiving academic credit.
 
This Summer, over 60 students and alumni are participating  in virtual and in-person  internships throughout Los Angeles, in fields including engineering, finance, medicine, and broadcast journalism.
