Welcome to Skills Village!
Skills Village is the go-to hub for students to stay organized and collaborate with their team throughout the COVID-19 Innovation Challenge. Interns will begin their day in Skills Village with a morning team-building meeting before dispersing for the day to tackle COVID-19-related workforce challenges one day at a time.
Interns may visit the “Post Office” to submit their challenges, navigate over to the “Convention Center” to grab a seat at an industry expert session, and of course, each corporation will have a "corporate headquarters” where the innovation, collaboration and problem-solving will occur daily.
Skills Village is equipped with a “virtual boardroom" for the elected leadership team and conference rooms for members of the teams; Communication & Arts, Business and Finance, Research and Development and Community Development.
INTERNS: LOOKING FOR SKILLS VILLAGE?
Heads up, Skills Village is for interns, coaches and mentors only!
