INROADS Receives Google Donation Towards Internship Programs
St. Louis, MO, April 13, 2010—As a result of a three-year partnership with Google, INROADS recently received a $50,000 donation as a gift of appreciation from the online media giant. As an INROADS partner, Google has provided internships to INROADS Interns over the course of three years with seven Interns being placed at Google last year alone. INROADS is thankful to Google for the generous donation and looks forward to continuing the partnership of placing diverse INROADS Interns at Google.
“I am very honored that INROADS has been chosen to receive this wonderful unsolicited donation from Google,” says Michelle Neal, INROADS Regional Director Pacific Northwest. She continues by saying, “I have enjoyed my relationship with Google and hope that we will continue to grow as the internship source for their expanding BOLD program.”
INROADS partners with the nation’s leading corporations saving them time and resources to recruit, screen, train, and place talented diversity students in corporate internships. The INROADS development and training curriculum connects the dots between the corporate sponsor’s business vision and goals and the Intern’s productivity and performance. INROADS also provides on-going academic support; matches Interns with a corporate mentor; and designs a customized professional development plan that almost surely guarantees that INROADS Interns are better equipped for leadership careers. In the end, Interns are placed in high level corporate internships often times leading to full-time positions upon graduation and corporate partners secure top talent that are primed to be exceptional leaders.
