Selective Corporate Internship Program (SCIP), a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax exempt organization was founded in 1997 by Monica and Miguel Mancebo to provide intensive, business environment training to talented inner high school students from New York City and New Jersey. This intensive six-week program incorporates training, professional development to a diverse group of highly motivated and goal oriented public high schools students with an interest in becoming business leaders and entrepreneurs.
SCIP was established to provide a growth module for students in the public school system to have access to the “movers and shakers” in the corporate arena and to have a wide range of future options. As part of their on-going community-oriented endeavors, the Mancebo wanted to give these students, who would not be able to connect to these leaders on their own, direct access to corporate professionals and business owners who could share their experience and insights.
SCIP’s interns are exposed to global business environments, trained in appropriate corporate communications, and coached in office protocol. Mentors provide interns with motivation and guidance to help them develop a strong work ethic, as well as enabling them to identify and take advantage of future opportunities. The Mancebo’s dedication inspires their Fortune 500 clients to welcome and provide advanced training to these outstanding interns, establishing a win-win situation for both the interns and corporations. SCIP builds on today’s strategies for success to create tomorrow’s leaders.
