REDF Accelerator

The REDF Accelerator brings together a cohort of talented social enterprise leaders who are using the transitional employment model to help their employees overcome barriers to employment and successfully transition into competitive, long-term employment. In addition to learning from REDF’s two decades of experience, fellows are able to provide each other with experience-based solutions, peer mentorship, and invaluable encouragement.

Farber Internship

The Farber Internship Program, founded by Stuart Davidson, REDF’s Vice Chair of Board of Directors, provides 10-week-long internships for current graduate students pursuing their MBA or other relevant degree programs (e.g. MPA, MPH, MSW) who want to explore careers in social enterprise. The summer-long positions at REDF or our portfolio organizations offer the opportunity to apply your business skills to strategic projects. Intense, hands-on, and practical, a Farber Internship offers front-line experience, backed by professional development workshops designed to provide exposure to a number of topics including venture philanthropy, double bottom line accounting & social costs, employee support programs, and measurement & social return on investment. The internship program also creates the opportunity to be a part of a cohort of inspiring and energetic students from around the country (and abroad) who are passionate about social enterprise and the work that REDF does.
