In addition to stimulating the local economy with our attendee direct and indirect spending, Your Turn Intern Expo & Celebrity Fest recognizes the need to give back and partner in the regions where we host our annual expo shows. Our annual philanthropic commitment is as follows;
- Your Turn Intern Expo donates a major portion of our proceeds from the expo and celebrity fest activities to fund internship grants / fellowships at local partnering businesses, community-based organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies that host paid or unpaid internships to benefit college students and recent college graduates from partner community colleges and 4-year universities. Priority consideration is given to applicants that have been hired to intern at partner companies or agencies that exhibit at Your Turn Intern Expo, applicants that have graduated and/or received certification from the Millennium Leadership Development Institute (LDI) or Your Turn Intern Expo Professional Development Series (Prospective Intern Track), and applicants that attend universities or colleges with major educational partnerships with Your Turn Intern Expo and/or Millennium Momentum Foundation, Inc.
- Your Turn Intern Expo recognizes that some agencies and companies cannot afford to host paid internships or could use additional support to further enhance their current paid internships, so a portion of our show proceeds will be donated to support those entities. We provide full financial support or partial matching financial support in the form of internship grants / fellowships for students placed at partner companies or agencies that exhibit at Your Turn Intern Expo……turning unpaid internships into paid internships or providing a financial aid boost to match paid internships!
