This week we are excited to share some good news from our Future Graduates program, as well as welcome back a returning sf.citi member company, and share an sf.citi mention in the news.
Over 20% of San Francisco students participating in our Future Graduates program this summer received job offers from sf.citi members. Future Graduates, co-hosted by sf.citi and the San Francisco Police Foundation, connects San Francisco high school students with paid summer internships at sf.citi member companies, where they receive hands-on experience working in the tech industry.
This year, in conjunction with the Mayor’s Jobs+ Initiative we placed 47 students at 13 companies. The students worked through out the summer, wrapping up their internships last week. 9 of them have been offered paid positions at their respective companies this fall. Congratulations Future Graduates!
sf.citi offers its members exclusive access to fully-funded Future Graduates internships. Learn more about sf.citi membership and how your company can host a Future Graduate next summer here.
Thanks to Returning Member Dropbox
Thank you to the team at Dropbox for renewing their sf.citi membership! San Francisco-based Dropbox has been an engaged and supportive member of sf.citi from day one. Their work with Circle the Schools is a great example of the kind of partnerships sf.citi builds between our member companies and our San Francisco community.
“sf.citi plays an instrumental role in connecting community stakeholders like companies and schools,” noted Dropbox Corporate Social Responsibility Associate Joe Wheeler. “We’re entering our third year as a Circle the Schools partner with Mission High School. I remember sitting down with Principal Eric Guthertz three years ago and talking about what might be possible, and to think about all the experiences and relationships built between now and then — the partnership has been extraordinarily meaningful on both sides.”
