Get Involved Foundation curriculum-based internships teach what's missing in traditional classrooms: Design Thinking for Social Change, Outward Mindset/Empathy Skills, Grit/Tenacity, and the 41 Developmental Assets.  High school students connect to their interests and make a measurable difference in the causes they care about.

Service-Learning for College and Career Success

There is no better way to prepare for college than show what you can actually do! 

Our program was developed to provide a more in-depth learning experience than simply volunteering.

We teach Design Thinking & Outward Mindset and help interns apply these important career concepts to their projects. We have nearly 800 organizations on our database of potential projects.

Pursue your interests, sign up for your Get Involved internship today.

Meaningful service and internships are hard to find. Our model solves that problem by crafting custom projects for students to benefit nonprofit organizations and causes. 

Please consider sponsoring a project or two on Paypal. You choose the topic or we can; we'll report back on how your students are doing! 

We teach underserved students to apply their interests for real-world impact, learn civic engagement and giving back.


Through a Get Involved internship, students can create meaningful impact on the community and the world, and learn important career lessons, including grit and outward mindset. Students can also earn the nationally recognized President's Volunteer Service Award for their work. More information about the President's Award can be found here.
