2018 Intern After Work

This program is designed to connect Ann Arbor area interns with social and professional connections.  Connecting to other interns at different companies helps builds relationships and an understanding of the rich variety of opportunities that exist in the region upon graduation.  This helps create "stickiness" so that your intern will stay with your company, or in the region, upon graduation.

Events that are in the works include a Tent at Summer Festival, Gallup Park BBQ & Float, Sonic Lunch, Art Fair, Big House Tour & Tailgate and more!

The membership fee fs $150 per intern, and includes all event fees.  

Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
