Mission Possible Summer Internships Open for 2020

If you’re a high school student living in Plano, Mission Possible Kids (MPK) could connect you to a valuable internship this summer. MPK says it is the largest single-site internship provider in Plano, empowering kids to become agents of change in the world by helping others, while also growing in their own potential.

Mission Possible Kids is a nonprofit organization that empowers kids to become agents of change in their own lives and the lives of others. Kids in the program accomplish “top-secret missions” such as stocking food banks, making gifts for those in hospitals or shelter and aiding in disaster relief. To date, youth in the program have helped over four million people in local communities and beyond.

This summer, up to 25 students will be selected for the unpaid MPK internship program. Whether it’s publishing, writing, education, business, design, research, finance or administration, MPK helps provide skills to advance the future careers of young people. Interning at a young age can help students stand out on college applications, scholarship applications and even future jobs. During their internship, kids receive interview coaching and personal financial management and learn skills related to their field of interest.

Founder and Executive Director Kathy Meadows shared, “Our past interns have gone on to do some pretty amazing things. Our alums include lawyers, doctors, teachers and business execs, including a Google software engineer and a professor launching a new space division at Harvard. They all say the same thing…their MPK internship made all the difference in setting them off on a path of future success.”

A perk to this internship program is that only one eight-hour day per week is required, on either a Monday or Tuesday. With only 25 slots, the internship program is competitive. Interest students can request an information packet and application by emailing info@mpkids.org. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2020.
