Thank you to our diverse network of Corporate Partners for sustaining dedicated, meaningful relationships with the SCIP Organization and our Student Leaders!
To “Enlighten, Employ, and Empower” diverse underprivileged students for successful careers through corporate mentorship, leadership development, and internship opportunities.
Founders Miguel and Monica McClure Mancebo are successful entrepreneurs and former Corporate HR Executives with a wealth of experience in career transition services and talent acquisition. The Mancebos were aware of the lack of opportunities for young people, whose backgrounds might not allow them to consider careers in Corporate Business and STEM. They developed a plan to train and connect deserving students from diverse and disadvantaged environments with the corporate world.
The Mancebos in collaboration with their corporate supporters (many Fortune 500 companies) provide critical technical and essential skills training to these outstanding students, establishing a win-win situation for both the students and corporations. SCIP provides a long term strategy that enhances their education and prepares them to be tomorrow’s leaders.

About the Program:
Through corporate mentorship, leadership development, and internship opportunities, SCIP members are able to best prepare for the corporate world, obtain employment post-college, and thrive in their careers. Interns are exposed to global business leaders, trained in corporate communications and coached in professional decorum. These activities take place during the school year and during the Summer Executive Leadership Program. SCIP also provides mentors who help the students develop a strong work ethic, and enables them to identify and take advantage of future opportunities for their college and post-college goals. Throughout the year, SCIP holds leadership and educational summits, diversity forums, and career expos in which corporate partners attend to recruit prospective employees. Upon entering it's 20th year in 2017, SCIP restructured programming into four distinct groups: Business and Finance, STEM, Entertainment and Hospitality.
The Selective Corporate Internship Program is a national 501(c)(3) organization.
