Comments from past interns:

"This internship exceeded every expectation I had. It was the perfect job to gain real world experience. I made connections and got a true taste of every day work life. I had something new to do almost every day while also learning different ways to network with professionals and how to plan and execute events. The people involved with Pro Players Foundation are some of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet. They truly care about their interns gaining experience while also having a good time at work. This internship was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I will never forget the knowledge that I gained while working there." - Taylor, Summer 2014

"I was a part of the planning and execution of several different events and the marketing and promotion of the organization. I was given the opportunity to be an active participant in all meetings and events. I defined and completed several different projects on my own. Most importantly, I was exposed to a great group of people from whom I was able to learn. PPF is composed of a diverse group of individuals who are passionate about their careers, the foundation, and the people in their lives. PPF holds their interns to a very high standard, and expects them to perform at that level. But, they will not treat you like an intern, they will make sure you are assisted and motivated, and that you achieve success. I am extremely happy with my decision to intern with PPF and strongly recommend choosing to be part of this great group." - Patrick, Fall 2013
