We offer a broad scope of interactive events for students who are enrolled in internships with Hampton Roads-based companies in an effort to diversify and accentuate their local experiences and relationships.

Summer757 gives interns at local businesses an opportunity to get to know the region through a series of interactive events highlighting our unique blend of careers, community, and culture. While Summer757 is marketed to students who have secured their summer internship, Campus757 offers many resources on searching, preparing for, securing, and succeeding in an internship.

The initiative will run alongside summer internships, kicking off at the beginning of June and wrapping up before the second week of August.

Here is a look at what students can expect, and what employers, educators and parents can expect students to accomplish in their Summer757 session:

Summer757 is making an impact

Summer757 will sponsor a comprehensive series of events and programming designed with both student and employer feedback in mind to accomplish the following goals:

1. Develop soft skills.

Based on feedback from Hampton Roads companies, students are not entering the workforce as fully developed as needed. Summer757 will help bridge that gap by facilitating opportunities for interns to further develop highly sought-after soft skills which can include:

  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Adaptability
  • Problem-solving
  • Creativity
  • Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
  • Work ethic
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Time management
  • Leadership
  • Attention to detail

2. Create community ties.

Studies show us that those who are engaged in their communities thrive in their careers at a higher level than those who are disengaged. Summer757 will give students the opportunity to explore and experience their area like life-long locals by sponsoring connections between students and the community through:

  • Targeted community-building volunteer experiences
  • Participation in local elections and committees
  • Connection with local government agencies and municipalities
  • Interactions with peers within and outside of their campus
  • Access to and connection with mentors, leaders, and ambassadors of the region

3. Advocate for interns.

Campus757 and the HRWC is committed to advocating for interns and young professionals entering the workforce. Through combined efforts with other local government authorities, community partners, and municipalities, we are challenging ourselves to work towards tackling the deeper issues that affect our students and shape their entrance into the workforce.

Mental health, housing needs, food insecurity, racial bias – the list goes on. Hampton Roads students deserve our commitment to the issues that widen instead of bridge the gaps in employment equality and we intend to serve our students in every way needed.

4. Have fun!

Who wants a summer without any fun? Not us! Luckily the 757 is full of opportunity for excitement.

From trying new dishes to meeting new friends, getting VIP event access to working with your hands, the Summer757 initiative is a perfect opportunity to add purpose to your fun and fun to your purpose.
