Internships

Internships offered through the Windward Network provide meaningful Summer 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 past Summer, 60 students and alumni participated in internships throughout Los Angeles, in fields including engineering, finance, medicine, and broadcast journalism.
