UPS Community Internship Program

For over 40 years the Community Internship Program (CIP) has brought upper-level UPS managers to New York, where they are immersed in the urban environment of the Lower East Side — one of the most economically and ethnically diverse communities in the country. The goal is to create a greater sensitivity to the social effects of poverty, as well as ideas for building job opportunities for low-income residents living in their home communities. During their internships, the managers work in one of the agency’s programs.

The relationships built with CIP interns have a profound effect on clients; the training and mentoring they receive builds confidence, as well as practical skills for attaining and retaining employment.
