This internship opened my eyes and showed me my potential. I am eternally grateful.

Progressive Pupil’s internship program offers professional development and hands-on experience for youth from communities that are underrepresented in nonprofit leadership, documentary filmmaking and digital media design and/or who are committed to promoting diversity in these fields. This program is one of the ways we make Black studies for everybody.

Unlike many internship and apprenticeship opportunities in these fields, our internship positions are paid. This opens the door for young people who need to support themselves while they are in school to take their first steps toward fulfilling their dreams of contributing to their communities while working as activists, filmmakers and interactive designers. The program is in its second year and your support will help us continue to mentor and affirm talented, committed youth who want to make a difference. Donate now and encourage youth to be the change you want to see.
