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 consumer shows. Our annual philanthropic commitment is as follows;
- Your Turn Intern donates a major portion of proceeds from the expo and celebrity fest activities to support local partnering small businesses, community-based organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies that host internships to benefit college students and recent college graduates. We recognize that some agencies cannot afford to host paid internships, so a portion of our show proceeds will be donated to support those entities, either by lending matching financial support for students placed at partner companies or agencies or …turning unpaid internships into paid internships!
- Your Turn Intern annually showcases distinguished employers representing business, educational institutions, government agencies and community-based organizations that annually implement successful internship programs benefiting college students and recent graduates. These entities are awarded FREE Millennium Partner memberships, showcased at the expo and entitled to exhibitor discounts, celebrity fest complimentary accommodations and more.
