The Rainmakers Program Phase I
Juniors … Jump Ahead
In our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP) Phase I, high school juniors will continue to increase and enhance the knowledge they need to secure and succeed in a Rainmakers Internship. What participating students learn will also help give them the skills they need if they decide to enter the Gig Economy in their last months in high school or in college, where they can use their skills to earn money working remotely under short-term contracts for a variety of employers.
While we cannot enforce, we actively dissuade students who are under the age of 18 from contacting employers to seek a remote Rainmakers internship. Most employers will not want to work with individuals who are not of legal age and we advise all our Host employers to refrain from doing so. Therefore, students who attempt to secure an internship before they achieve their majority will probably be wasting their time. Further, while we prepare students to enter the Gig Economy, we do not provide support for those who elect to do so prior to their 18th birthday.
Toward that end, we also advise students of the many instances of scamming on some web interchanges where job seekers attempt to connect with employers who need their skills. To ensure that students are aware of these ‘bad actors,’ we provide informational teleconferences with representatives from some of those exchange sites and we mount the recordings on our website for all to access.
Students have nine months from the date of their high school graduation to secure and serve their Rainmakers Internships, so we ensure they have enough time to achieve the goals we have set for them.
