TIP provides deserving Los Angeles high school juniors the chance to work in dynamic career areas through paid internships of four or more weeks during their summer break. Through TIP, students have worked in fields like digital media, entertainment, technology, health care, and design. These experiences can level the playing field for many students in Los Angeles. We empower student success; they change the trajectory of their careers. Throughout these internships, TIP students document their experiences through videos and blogs, thanks to a generous donation by Samsung.
