The first step in being successful is helping meet your needs. TDN works with community-based organizations to help provide you with the resources you need to give you the best chance of landing the opportunity (e.g., transportation, clothing, food).

Paid Internships

Gain meaningful work experience at a STEM-driven company. Our goal is to identify and connect you with paid internships at life science companies, research institutes, or tech-related organizations.

TDN also hosts interactive events and workshops to help you build communication skills and social capital with workshops and events, such as resume reviews, mock interviews, and networking opportunities.
