The High School Ambassador must be a self-starter with a great desire to help others. He or she must be energetic, outgoing, and creative with outstanding communication skills.

The NBCF High School Ambassador program is exclusive to Plano ISD and Frisco ISD students.

High School Internship Program

The application for our High School Intern Program will be live Spring 2020.

NBCF is partnering with Frisco ISD to bring the students of Frisco our High School Internship Program. The dates of the internship will run from June 10-July 19.

Each intern will spend six weeks at NBCF immersing themselves in the non-profit culture and learning how the various departments work together to support the mission of the foundation. The first three weeks will be spent in Programs, Development, and Marketing to learn about the day-to-day operations of NBCF. There will also be a session for each of the six weeks that the intern is with us to learn about resume preparation, interview skills, public speaking, and other important professional topics relevant to working in any environment. The last three weeks of the internship will be spent working on a group project that will be presented to senior staff.

Meet Our Past Interns

Our inaugural internship program began in the Summer of 2016 with four bright young interns. Since then, we've had the pleasure of working with over 15 interns. We are thankful for the relationships we've built with these students and appreciate their ongoing contributions to our cause. See below to learn more about our interns.

“I feel that I have grown so much and truly extended myself beyond what I thought I was capable of. And this is all thanks to the wonderful people at NBCF as well as my fellow interns. From the first day we started here, the staff has consistently made sure to give us the best and most enriching experiences possible. We have gotten to work on so many projects that have real life applications and by giving us these projects, the foundation has demonstrated how much they value us and our ideas.”

“NBCF has been a life changing experience that I won’t ever forget. From the wonderful staff, to the memorable learning, every single second was something to take in. All the departments were so inviting and open, and everyone was willing to help. Every Professional Development, Advisor Meeting, and Project was a valuable learning opportunity. I obtained an unbelievable amount of information from each department and I’m sure that I will use these experiences to help me in the future.”

“From the moment I first walked into the NBCF office, I was welcomed by smiling faces. Everyone has such a positive, inviting attitude and shows a strong passion for their role at NBCF. I was amazed at how immersed we really were into the organization and how open the staff were willing to meet with us. We got to experience what it is really like to work in a business setting from tackling real, applied projects and interacting with other employees, something that is not gained in just a high school classroom setting.”

“From start to finish, the program gave me so many memories, exposure, and skills that I am so grateful to have been chosen for this internship. The people here are remarkably dedicated and so very good at what they do and it has been a privilege learning from them and to have been under their guidance these past 6 weeks. It truly has been a beautiful opportunity in every way.”

“I was given the incredible opportunity to learn from the most wonderful staff members who took time out of their busy schedules to teach us everything from the logistics of programs, development, and marketing to how to improve our resumes, public speaking, and network with other professionals. Additionally, I was able to share my experience with five other exceptional individuals who constantly motivated me to think out of the box and work even harder, and I am so glad to now call them my close friends.”

“I’ve learned so much from this program about public speaking, project management, and teamwork skills and so much more about how a successful nonprofit works. I’m amazed by how much time and help the departments gave to the interns and how our ideas and projects were valued and sought through. I will never forget all the strong friendships and knowledge I gained from this internship. The National Breast Cancer Foundation is truly an extraordinary non‐profit and I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything."
