Sponsor an Intern

Make a real contribution in the life of a Crossroads' scholar -- well beyond the dollars and cents.
The Crossroads' Corporate Sponsorship Program is a meaningful mentoring and internship experience that matches 11th grade Crossroads scholars with working professionals at sponsoring companies in the greater Pittsburgh area.  Corporate sponsors assist in funding a scholar's junior and senior year Crossroads scholarship plus a constructive internship over summer.
The majority of our sponsors use the EITC/OSTC tax credit program to make their sponsorship donation -
which allows them to earn a dollar-for-dollar tax credit of 90% on their contribution.  But if you ask our dedicated sponsors, the
far greater reward is the satisfaction of playing a hands-on role in the future college and career success of their
sponsored scholar.
Here's why the Corporate Sponsorship Program is a "Win-Win":
  • Crossroads works with each corporate sponsor individually to tailor an appropriate internship and also match scholars to internships based on their individual strengths, talents and career interests.
  • Sponsors participate in complimentary mentor training and enjoy the added benefit of building relationships with Pittsburgh's leaders of tomorrow.
  • The ultimate goal of the program is for corporate sponsors to become valuable resources for their sponsored interns once they graduate college and begin a job search.
