Summer Internships. Would you like to join our North America team for the Summer?

What are you doing this Summer? Want to work for a newly launched social impact organisation on a mission to help governments achieve public impact?

The Centre for Public Impact (CPI) is a global non-profit foundation, launched by The Boston Consulting Group, that helps governments and their partners turn ideas into impact. The CPI team in North America works to advance innovative solutions that lead to better outcomes for citizens. We do this by being:

  • a place where leaders and influencers come together to share insights
  • a trusted expert voice and source of insight on public impact
  • a source of practical tools and advice on how to deliver outcomes for citizens
  • a partner to organizations seeking to drive public impact and social innovation

We are seeking outstanding graduate and undergraduate interns to support our programmatic agenda of activities and external partnerships. A core part of this agenda is working with major philanthropic partners, such as Bloomberg Philanthropies, to support a portfolio of projects across our City Innovation, Economic Mobility and Government Legitimacy pillars. You will play a key role in supporting the day-to-day execution of these projects while also contributing to other CPI programs and initiatives.
