Get Involved

We consider ourselves fortunate to have the support of THF volunteers and sponsors who, through their willingness to lend their time and resources, are essential to our success.

If you are a company representative, industry professional or a THF alumnus and would like to get involved in support of the Foundation’s mission, here are a few ways you can connect/reconnect with us, give back and Pay It Forward:

Become a mentor to an intern

A unique benefit for students in the Internship Program is being paired with a mentor. Our mentors include alumni and experienced professionals across the country who are passionate about helping students learn about the industry and their specific field of interest. Mentors also assist mentee(s) with networking, navigating challenging work situations and building self-confidence. Please consider becoming a mentor to a THF intern…learn more here.

Host an event for interns or alumni

Hosting a networking or recruitment event provides your organization with exclusive access to our talent pool and the opportunity to build a pipeline of qualified candidates for your full-time hiring needs. These events also provide attendees with valuable insights into your industry, business, and programs, as well as the skills and experiences needed to succeed as members of your teams.

Participate in THF events as speaker or panelist

Each year, the T. Howard Foundation hosts 80-100 students for a 2½-day professional development seminar to provide them with expert speakers, panel discussions, resources, and guidance as they prepare to enter their internships. Please consider volunteering at our orientation to help interns understand the importance and value of maximizing their summer internship opportunity.

Share an event for interns or alumni

If you’re hosting or organizing an event (corporate, professional, community, social, etc.) that you’d like to share with THF members (students, alumni, talent pool, etc.), tell us about it! Let us know if this is an open or limited invitation, a volunteer opportunity, or if you’d like to sponsor THF members to attend.

Yes, I’d like to get involved!
