About Impact Academy

Internships make one of the biggest differences for college students. They improve your employability, lead to more offers, and help you discover interests. 

Conceived as the ultimate internship experience, Impact Academy sets you on a mission to make a big difference for yourself and Tulsa by working in teams to find and solve worthwhile problems in the Tulsa community.

During this paid (yes, paid!) 9-week program, you’ll work closely with talented mentors and a project team of students just like you. We have spots for up to 25 incoming college juniors and seniors.
