Where Are Rainmakers Programs?
We work with school administrators, educators, and parents in public, private, or parochial schools to establish our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP) in any location where students want to ramp up the trajectory of their lives by preparing for their future careers even as they move get ready for education after high school.
When they complete our program and turn 18 years of age, our participating students will know how to enter the Gig Economy while they are still in high school or college, where they can earn money for college, trade school, transportation, and other necessities.
We also accept first-year college students in an adapted program for students on campuses around the country.
The most intense work is accomplished in junior/senior years in high school as we culminate our training within The Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program, which targets juniors and seniors in high school and encourages them to seek, secure, and successfully serve internships with a hosting company that they have recruited to the project.
However, we begin preparing students much earlier, as we also:
- extend our work down into eighth grade with The First Rung curriculum, thus building the Rainmakers pipeline, and
- continue our work in ninth and tenth grade with our Stormy Wannabees Advantage Initiative so students are as prepared as they can be for their future lives.
Schools that adopt our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program also receive our Stormy Wannabees Advantage Initiative for freshmen and sophomores and our First Rung program for students in Grade Eight for sending middle schools — all for one low price.
If our Rainmakers Candidates (participating students) successfully complete the RIPP by securing and serving a business-based internship, they receive FREE lifetime memberships in The Rainmakers Club, an online community where they can build their networking contacts, pursue job acquisition, and apply for paid internships with The Internship Depot and its partnering organizations. Successful completion of The Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program is marked by a letter of recommendation from the business that hosted the individual’s internship.
We establish Internship Depot programs where high school administrators want to ensure that their students are not only prepared for ongoing education, but are also prepared for the challenges that they will face when they enter the future workforce — in schools that are equally committed to students’ academic and workforce success.
We establish Internship Depot programs in areas where teachers want to make sure that their students understand the importance of each and every course taught in high school and students who can clearly connect learning in those courses to potential sources of income as adults.
We establish Internship Depot programs in areas where parents want to ensure that the messages they have been giving their teens are reinforced by credible individuals and who may want or need their teens to contribute to the cost of their educations after high school by securing employment in the Gig Economy now and for the rest of their lives.
