The Hire Cause Fellowship is a 5-week experiential learning program that empowers high school students in grades 7-12 to grow professional skills through civic engagement, partnering with local businesses to raise awareness and money for the charity of their choice.
You have to live it to learn it
Only 11% of employers think that graduates have the skills needed to
succeed on day one of the job. These skills can only be learned
through living them, and most internships focus
only on administrative tasks.
We are empowering you to bridge this skills gap
through our fellowship program, in a way that
makes a difference in the lives of others and
helps you stand out to your dream
colleges and employers.
Founder, Hire Cause
Former Internship Director for the official radio partner of the Grammy Awards & was responsible for hiring recent college graduates.
Studied the design of internship programs including the benefits and limitations.
Was bothered by the fact that not everyone has access to good internships and the majority of internships solely revolve around administrative tasks. Employers want students to have certain professional skills, but are too busy to teach them.
Felt compelled to create a space where students are gaining more meaningful experience, in which they learn and grow professionally from leading projects that positively impact their communities.
Your Future is his passion
Meaningful Experience to
Explore your interests
Students partner with businesses to serve non-profits, using this project-based-learning & social impact experience to explore industries that interest them and causes they care about.
Join the other student leaders who are taking charge of their future.

The movement of social & emotional learning
Hire Cause believes we need to create better leaders, not better test takers.
Why save all of the best wisdom and career advice for college students on their LAST DAY before they graduate? What if we asked the Michael Jordans, Oprah Winfreys, and Warren Buffets of the world to share career advice with students four to eight years earlier on DAY ONE of high school? Students would have more time to explore, make mistakes, and apply the social and emotional learning principles from today's most influential role models. Hire Cause is working to make this a reality.
