The Foundation’s Summer Internships – Apply Now!

The Foundation’s Summer Internship Programs are designed to provide students in their junior, senior, and graduate years of college an opportunity to intern at one of the AD Club’s member agencies or organizations. Throughout the summer, students are able to hone  their technical skills and learn interpersonal skills. The program provides the ability to learn about the effects of a strong EQ (emotional IQ), communication skills, leadership, adaptability, and problem solving—critical skills necessary for self-management that relate to success. In addition, the program helps interns learn how to make responsible choices about their academic, personal, and career goals.
