Internship Appreciation Night at Pathways Academy of Technology & Design

Internship Appreciation Night at Pathways Academy of Technology & Design

Hosted at Goodwin College, Thursday, November 29, 2018, the Pathways Internship Appreciation Event is an annual celebration of accomplishment and a night of thanking the many partners that make the program possible.  It truly is a magical night and November 29 was no exception.

Eighty summer interns were invited to come and share their accomplishments and dreams with professionals from 20 distinct organizations.  They were polished, poised and spoke with direction and purpose.  The Goodwin College Auditorium was filled with energy and excitement as well as talent and potential.  The organizations present were eager to welcome the next generation of professionals into their companies to leverage their perspective, skills and abilities.

Pathways continues its focus on work-based learning and the integration of real-world experiences, professionals and summer internships into students’ education.  Following the NAF model, to bring companies and educators together, has proved beneficial for so many students so far and promises to continue to be a stellar partnership for the future.

Cheers to our college and career ready interns, you made this happen and we are so very proud!
