(May 2022) The KIPPtern program is designed to help KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate graduates interview for a position, match them with the right fit, provide professional development on interning 101, and provide feedback from their mentors during their summer internship. The program offers continuous support throughout the summer to the interns along with resources to help them during their internship experience.
