You’ve probably heard the saying that landing a job is all about who you know. Networking reigns supreme. But for many foster youth, having the right connections doesn’t happen without a parent’s network to lean on. Securing a college internship is no different, especially in the ultra-competitive Silicon Valley job market. 

Pivotal scholars rely on their internships to gain the professional experience and networking they’re hungry for and critical income they’re counting on to make ends meet. So, we developed the Pivotal Resource Council or PRC - a group of local business and community leaders who work to recruit internship hosts and help students to expand their professional networks. 


I enjoy sharing my ability to connect folks, so I was excited to join the Pivotal Resource Council. It’s powerful for foster youth to know what they’re capable of—like working for a Fortune 100 company or running their own business.
