THE NEED

Soon the Baby-Boomer generation in today's workplace will be retiring across the united states, and there is a critical need to ensure that systemic efforts are in place in local communities to educate, mentor, train, and employ the next generation of employees that will reinvest their education and practical skills to improve the quality of life for the public good in their roles as future private, nonprofit and public sector leaders.

THE STRATEGY

For years, it was assumed that young people completing their collegiate education were given all the knowledge and technical skills they needed to succeed in the workplace. However, it is becoming clear now that our strategies to emphasize practical training in leadership and employment skills, along with ongoing supportive services, are equally important if young people are going to develop an effective work ethic and operate successfully in the current economy. Millennium Momentum Foundation, Inc., the benefiting charity of Your Turn Intern Expo & Celebrity Fest, is addressing this need by preparing current college students and recent college grads for workforce matriculation thru our Annual Leadership Development Institute (LDI) Program, which directly precedes Your Turn Intern Expo and is hosted at Convention Centers around the Nation. The MMF Leadership Development Institute (LDI) aims to equip young people with the tools they need to be adequately trained with practical leadership & employment skills, thoroughly understand the nature of the internship & job seeking process, and ultimately be positioned to transition into the workforce upon completing their academic objectives.


THE PROGRAM

To this end, our Leadership Development Institute (LDI) involves practical executive leadership skills training, practical employment core competency training, financial literacy guidance, robust peer & professional networking engagement, and more that administered thru a 2-Day workshop series that directly precedes our Your Turn Intern Expo at convention centers in major cities around the Nation. LDI also administers ongoing professional development support, mentoring and supportive services throughout the year to college students and recent college grads that are seeking to be placed in internships or practicum assignments with Your Turn Intern Expo's partner employers in our targeted expo production territories including, but not limited to Southern California, Silicon Valley, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, and Miami.
