One Family is dedicated to providing opportunities for One Family Scholars to access employers and learn more about the career opportunities and professional expectations within the industry they are studying. We are currently approaching this effort through two avenues:
Lunch and Learn Program and Internships
One Family Scholars
Need Your Help
Your donation provides much needed financial assistance to students enrolled in the program.
While One Family Scholars are studying an array of disciplines, the following are the most common:
♦ Business Adminstration
♦ Criminal Justice
♦ Human Services
How you can help
Host a Lunch and Learn session
The One Family Lunch & Learn Program is designed to provide One Family Scholars with the opportunity to visit an employer’s work site and learn directly from the employer about career opportunities and professional expectations in their industry.
Lunch & Learn sessions are 75 to 90 minutes long and include an interactive presentation about the company and industry, along with a tour of the work site (if applicable). We ask host companies to invite a small group of employees to join One Family Scholars for lunch and an informal Q&A session about the industry.
Provide an Internship
Internships are great way for One Family Scholars to develop job skills and collaborate with professionals in their field. Similar to other student internships, we encourage you to consider offering a position for the length of one semester. From there, the intern and their coordinator can discuss the possibility of an extension or renewal.
These unique approaches offer One Family Scholars one-on-one access to professionals in their career field, providing an exposure often limited or nonexistent for low-income students. In return, employers gain access to qualified candidates and an opportunity to give back to the community.
