The St. Louis Internship Program goal is to provide hope and opportunity for high school students in financial need through paid summer internships, intensive employability training, and year-round college and career planning, in partnership with businesses and community organizations, and to build the St. Louis community by developing motivated, well-trained, and talented future employees. Since 1992, 98% of nearly 4,000 SLIP interns have successfully acquired employability skills, graduated high school, and pursued their career goals.
In support of our life-changing programs, this year we are excited to invite you to celebrate 25 years of SLIP’s mission of providing a world of hope and opportunity through partnerships with underserved youth and businesses, resulting in stronger communities.
We are so pleased to announce that our 25th Anniversary Celebration will be held at the beautiful Coronado Ballroom! On Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 6:00 p.m., donors and friends will gather to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a chance to mingle with SLIP ambassadors, a fabulous catered meal, shopping at our live auction, and an opportunity to be inspired by our SLIP mission and our youth! Enjoy entertainment by The Ralph Butler Band. Complimentary valet parking will be provided.
