COVID Updates

The First Workings Team is working remotely until authorities have instructed it is safe to return to the office.

We recognize the difficulty many of our internship partners will have in hosting our students this summer, even if they are able to re-open in early May. We have therefore created virtual professional skills workshops for our students to participate in this summer, instead of trying to place them in internships with companies who are working to overcome the impacts on their businesses that this pandemic has exacted. To continue our mission of helping students acquire social capital and broaden their horizons, we are very excited to offer virtual mentoring opportunities this summer.  Click here to learn more about the #FirstWorkingsJourney and ways you can be involved!

If you have any questions about the changes to our summer program, please contact our Program Manager, Whittney at [email protected] 

We’re wishing you and your loved ones safety and health during this difficult time.
