CBMA Partners with Fund II Foundation to Increase Paid Internships for African American College Students

The Campaign for Black Male Achievement is excited to our partnership with Fund II Foundation (F2F) to support internX, an ambitious initiative to match 10,000 skilled young adults nationwide with quality internship opportunities by the year 2020. 

Led by F2F President Robert F. Smith, internX was created to increase diversity and inclusion in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields by helping companies to recruit, develop and retain talent of color, particularly African American college students. 

Through internX, students will be matched with paid skills-building internships and provided with a range of preparatory tools and services. They will also gain insight into the diversity, equity and inclusion practices and cultures of different companies, and have the ability to provide feedback upon successful completion of their internships. 

Registration for the internX program is now open! To apply, follow these easy steps:

  1. Click on the "Register Today!" button below.
  2. Complete the student registration form (For "Organization Affiliation", select Campaign for Black Male Achievement)
  3. Click register, and begin gaining access to program benefits

CBMA is excited to join the Fund II Foundation in this important initiative to ensure our young people are equipped to thrive in life, school and career. Please help us spread the word and share this opportunity with your networks!
