ABOUT THE COLLEGE BOARD
As a not-for-profit membership association representing more than 6,000 colleges, universities and schools, the College Board leads national and international efforts to improve access to and readiness for higher education.
We are committed to increasing the number of students who earn a college degree and are prepared to succeed in the 21st century. Today’s College Board works with middle schools, high schools, community colleges, four-year colleges, policymakers and state education agencies to achieve this mission. Each year, the College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success — including the SAT ® and the Advanced Placement Program ® . The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators and schools.
The College Board's Internship Program is an exciting chance to develop new skills while contributing to an organization that is committed to the transformation of education in America through college readiness for all students.
The Internship Program presents a unique opportunity to highly talented students who wish to develop strengths in core skills, and to obtain real-world work experience. The College Board is committed to our Internship Program and ensures that each student receives mentoring, experiences a variety of assignments that allow for collaboration with diverse groups across the organization, and focuses on defined deliverables.
