Check out the article from “E-Jewish Philanthropy,” news publication covering the world of Jewish philanthropy, about how two NYC colleges have used Emerge, our signature online platform, to help students become better prepared for internship and job opportunities.
Here’s the central paragraph about the effectiveness of Emerge:
“Not only did students turn out – more than 50 of them – but the [Emerge] program also worked effectively to prepare them for the job market. The summer group was so successful we implemented a cohort for each semester of the 2020-2021 school year. Last semester alone, 25% of participants who completed the internship had full-time jobs or internships at its end. This is the kind of lasting communal impact that is possible when we work together to serve our students’ most pressing needs.”
