ALPFA Fellowship Outline

Operation Helping Hands is designed to solve the COVID-19 situation  disproportionately impacting high performing Hispanic college students who have had internships rescinded, and helping companies create meaningful engagement for their employees with the Hispanic community.

The 8-week program will consist of ALPFA fellows - high potential students - selected from ALPFA Chapters across the country. The ALPFA Fellows will be put into teams (Pods) that together will solve an assigned real-life business or societal problem chosen by our partner organizations.

Fellows are expected to work 10 – 15 hours per week on the problem and will present their solution to the partner organization at the end of the 8-week program. The ALPFA Fellows program will also include 1-2 hours a week of professional development training for eight weeks, designed to build “soft skills” and technical skills that are critical to success in the workforce.

General Criteria:

  1. Have an active Premium Membership and updated profile in the ALPFA database.
  2. All majors.
  3. Be a rising Junior or above.
  4. Have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.

  6. Have internet and computer access to attend required meetings and training.
  7. Attend all weekly professional development meetings for eight weeks.
