It's not just their future . . . it's YOURS.
In Summer 2014, Denver’s OED launched a joint project with the highly admired Denver Scholarship Foundation.
DSF carefully selects high-achieving but disadvantaged high school graduates and awards them with a four-year education in Colorado (if you’re not familiar with their approach, learn more at www.dsf.org.) We add a real-world, on the job professional work experience to the complement the academic rigor as these impressive young people earn their undergraduate degrees.
OED’s strength is in working with local companies to build success, including ensuring a skilled talent pool for employers to hire from.
That’s where you come in.
We are seeking visionary employers who know that finding top talent is critical to your company’s future. By investing in a summer internship with a high-achieving scholar, you’re serving both the student’s interests and your own. You’ll immediately understand why a third of our students last year were invited to stay (or return) after their eight-week summer internships ended.
We think this match of DSF’s rigorous program and our connections with area employers is a winning idea, which is why it’s being expanded for Summer 2015.
This is obviously not anything like a typical summer job program. These are exceptional students have completed at least two years of college and are maintaining the kind of achievement and motivation that DSF saw when they were awarded their undergraduate scholarships.
We are proud to support this elite group of ambitious, motivated young professionals who seek careers in energy, finance, law, and marketing, among others.
These are motivated young professionals who seek careers in energy, finance, law, medicine, engineering, and management, among others. They come from disadvantaged situations yet have demonstrated great discipline and focus, and where they’re going is limited only by our imaginations.
You are exactly what they need to fulfill the promise of the DSF investment.
And these young adults are exactly what your organization needs to give you a head start in investing in tomorrow’s executive workforce.
