2020 Interns

Passion Impact is excited to introduce you to our 2020 Interns. Currently we are hosting two separate internships for students to engage in.

We are lucky to be working with 3 phenomenal college students taking on the challenge of building an Integrated Marketing Plan. Passion Impact will be applying their plan as a map for our communications between September 2020 and June 2021.

Our other group of interns come from Franklin High School and will be spending their time engaging in leadership development, continual learning with various social justice topics and complete a multitude of projects that are aimed at giving them opportunities to explore and grow their passions.

We are excited to be working with both groups of students throughout the summer. Want to support them? Subscribe to the newsletter and follow them on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn!
