CESR BlogAbout the Program

The impact internship program was created to connect mission-driven students with internships that they can be passionate about. CESR facilitates the recruiting process for natural products companies, B Corps, and other companies whose missions go beyond profit.

Our goal is to increase the value of the internships for both the company and the students by providing training and support along the way. To ensure that these internships meet this expectation, we have created the following requirements for companies submitting internships: they must meet or exceed living wage, last 12 weeks (10-40 hours per week), and have a professional workspace with two or more employees. With these requirements, we hope to recruit both the best companies and the best students to guarantee that everyone benefits from the experience.

All internships will be posted by 6pm on April 12th for students to view. The deadline for applications will be April 17th followed by interviews on April 22-25. Additionally, there will be a program kickoff, mid-summer check-ins with CESR, and a final presentation on students’ work at the end of the internship.
