Each summer, the Dallas Regional Chamber hosts undergraduate college and university students to participate in an active Internship program. The program aligns closely with the DRC’s strategic plan, investing in the emerging workforce and mentoring students to become job-ready upon graduation. Students are provided the opportunity to work with a diverse group of experienced staff and DRC members in a fast-paced, challenging environment.

Internship Program Activities

Intern Weekly Meeting

Each week the Interns meet as a group with the Internship Program Director to update each other on current projects and work on the group project.

Cohort Project

During the Intern Orientation Meeting, the interns select a topic for their summer long cohort project. The theme and execution of the cohort project is in entirely in the hands of the interns, with guidance from the Intern Program Director. At the end of the Internship, interns present the project to the DRC staff and invited guests. Check out the Summer 2015Summer 2016, and Summer 2017 projects.

Informational Interviews

During the semester, interns have the opportunity to meet with a member of the DRC that sparks their interest for a potential career. This is a time for the Intern to have the opportunity to ask questions, gain insight, and connect with industry leaders outside of the DRC staff.

Lunch N’ Learns

Each week, we host an exclusive Lunch n’ Learn for our Interns, featuring one of our Executive Team members. The member will present on a topic relevant to students such as Sales Tactics, Customer Service, Civic Engagement, and Personal Branding.

Focus Trips

At least once a summer, Interns will venture out to one of the DRC’s member organizations for an afternoon. This is a time for the interns to break away from the office and see first-hand the hard work of the DRC member organizations. Past trips have included The Dallas Entrepreneur Center and D Magazine/Dallas Innovates.

Social Activities

At the beginning and end of the semester, there is an opportunity for Interns to come together in a social setting and celebrate their hard work! It might be going to lunch, bowling, or a baseball game; providing opportunities for Interns to bond together is a priority.
