The number one request from our young alumni - those still in college - is help opening doors to members of the Hawken community who may have internship opportunities in career fields they seek. To respond to that, the Alumni Office launched HawkForce in 2019, a summer internship program for our young alumni. This 8-12-week internship is meant to include meaningful work that will help businesses, in addition to exposing Hawken young alumni to a future profession.

“This summer internship allowed me to expand on my knowledge and explore my passion for data analytics. Thank you HawkForce and Factor Finders for the great opportunity.”

“HawkForce helped make the internship process easy by connecting alumni with diverse companies, communities, and organizations. I was able to explore an internship I never would have known about or considered without HawkForce as a guide to show me it existed”
