Life Skills You Will Acquire
Our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP) provides opportunities for our Rainmakers Candidates (participating students) to sample the challenges and excitement that professionals in the world of work experience every day. Candidates will build an entire range of skills that both employers and colleges want. Most importantly, Candidates will develop the professional audacity they will need in the future to seek and secure employment in traditional or Gig employment.
Our program activities will give Candidates the opportunity to learn, practice, apply, and extend all the skills employers consider most critical.
- We teach and mentor Candidates so they can learn about these critical skills.
- We offer simulation exercises that mirror the world of work so Candidates can practice critical skills.
- Members apply what they have learned and practiced by securing and serving an internship with an employer that each Candidate has recruited to be his or her business ‘host.’
- Candidates will be immediately able to extend learning into the real world by joining the ‘human cloud’ when they turn 18 years old and where they will seek and secure paid employment in the Gig Economy, earning money while still in high school or college.
RIPP is demanding enough that each participating student will need to dig deep and build the kind of ‘grit’ employers value — the ability to pursue a set of goals regardless of the sacrifices those goals require.
In addition to ‘grit,’ all our activities have been designed to ensure Candidates acquire critical work and life skills, listed below. Each will be explained thoroughly to Candidates during our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program.
Check out life skills students acquire in our programs listed in the bulleted list at the bottom of the page.
