Alcoa Foundation’s Global Internship Program for Unemployed Youth

Alcoa Foundation

Alcoa Foundation’s Global Internship Program provides workforce development opportunities for 200 unemployed youth (ages 18-24) in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States with the aim of increasing the employability of youth in the manufacturing sector. Alcoa Foundation is invested in public-private partnerships which provide youth with work-related experience in manufacturing, leadership skills, and resources about post-secondary career and training options. This is the second cycle of the program and will take place over two years, based on the success of the first cycle which provided workforce development opportunities for 500 unemployed youth. During the first cycle, 95% of the individuals completed the program during the initial two-year cycle and 73% of those who completed the program are currently employed or enrolled in a workforce training or education program.
