Internships at Project Level

Chamber member Project Level is an active non-profit that nurtures the creative needs of at-risk and under-served Bay Area inner-city youth through performing arts. Their focus areas include music, film, fashion, dance, and marketing. Project Level is hosting a 6-week internship program for 75 local youth. Interns learn industry skills for creative fields as well as important leadership skills to carry with them later on. We are impressed by their ability to support so many youth with relevant and quality programming. Many thanks to Project Level for assisting so many youth in our community!

In this multi-week workshop, students learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript from mentors in the computer science industry as well as key skills needed to succeed in professional work environments. Many thanks to LinkedIn for finding an innovative way to give local youth the skills and experience valued by leading SF employers.
