Global Internship Program for Unemployed Youth

The Global Internship Program for Unemployed Youth works with local nonprofit organizations to provide workforce development opportunities to unemployed youth with the goal of increasing their employability in the manufacturing sector.

Impact

During an initial two-year cycle (2013-2015), Legacy Alcoa Foundation’s Global Internship Program provided workforce development opportunities for 500 unemployed youth (ages 18-24) in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States with the aim of increasing the employability of youth in the manufacturing sector.

Highlights

  • 95% of these individuals completed the program during the initial two-year cycle.
  • 73% of those who completed the program are currently employed or enrolled in a workforce training or education program.

Continued Success

Based on the overwhelming success of the initial two-year cycle, Legacy Alcoa Foundation launched a new cycle of workforce development opportunities in October 2015, building upon existing relationships from the first cycle of the initiative with five non-profit partner organizations to provide opportunities for 200 unemployed youth (ages 18-24) in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
