At the Satell Institute our mission is to develop and lead a Collective Force of Businesses & Foundations Partnering with Nonprofits for The Greater GoodTM.
Satell Institute Internship Program
The Satell Institute Internship Program brings together talented students with a deep interest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the importance of businesses and nonprofits working together to positively impact the communities in which they work and live. Since 2018, the Institute has welcomed undergraduate and graduate students (Senior Scholars) to learn firsthand from business leaders and use their skills and expertise to develop projects to support the mission of the organization.
2021 Satell Scholars Internship Program – Expanded Pilot Program
The 2021 Senior Scholars cohort was comprised of five multitalented and diverse undergraduate and graduate students driven by an interest in CSR. Their 12-week commitment to the Satell Institute allowed them to learn firsthand from business and nonprofit leaders and use their broad range of skills and expertise on various projects supporting the mission of the Institute.
New this year, the Satell Institute’s internship opportunity was expanded to also include a pilot program open to Philadelphia high school students, also known as Junior Scholars, to learn about CSR and the impact that organizations can have on communities from the Senior Scholars, Institute partners, and staff.
In this impactful undertaking, the Senior Scholars created four weeks of content that introduced the Junior Scholars to the world of CSR. The cohort created a diverse curriculum that included numerous presentations on CSR-related topics, learning activities, work assignments, and assessments, while providing valuable business and life skills aimed to prepare the students for a successful future. Additionally, the Senior Scholars mentored and worked with the students to creating meaningful videos that tell the stories of the Institute’s Corporate & Foundation Members and Nonprofit Affiliates.
