Yesterday (June 3, 2015), San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr and sf.citi Chairman Ron Conway announced the 4th annual Future Graduates summer tech internships program, a partnership between the San Francisco Police Foundation and San Francisco Citizens Initiative for Technology and Innovation (sf.citi).
The Future Graduates program enhances youth access to 21st Century work experience, placing local high school students in paid summer internships at innovative, San Francisco-based technology companies. – Read the full Press Release here.
AppFusions is proud to host 8 of the future graduates this summer, to make up our “AppFusions’ Future Grads Leadership Camp“. During the camp, we will be facilitating, encouraging, training, and empowering the future grads in many typical tasks found in a startup.
They will work with us on numerous efforts, learning and performing tasks such as product testing, product management reviews and inputs, marketing collateral development (printed / PDF briefs), demo video development, CRM enhancements and analysis, code analysis and reviews, and possibly other contributions depending on skills.
While we will provide positive guidance, tools and objectives, a big part of our program is about them developing their skills independently over the summer, while growing confidence through tangible results. We expect each of the future grads to come away from the program with solid skills for their “evolving resume” in life, and who knows, maybe we will hire them in the future too one day.
Read more (and watch video) about the program at KTVU’s story segment on the Future Graduates program. Also some Facebook photos.
While perhaps this is an opportunity for the future grads, honestly, AppFusions sees this as an incredible opportunity for our corporation as well, and super excited for the summer journey together!
