• The six-week internship programme grooms candidates into problem-solving leaders and effective managers for India — young professionals who can use their training and education to solve problems of the present and future, and offer leadership to the country.

  • The Internship Programme is divided into three segments:


    Intern Development

    Weeks 1-2

    Candidates begin their internship journey with a week-long orientation that enables them to identify the purpose of their education and training, introduces them to the values and vision of the organization and facilitates self-reflection.

    Organizational Leadership

    Weeks 2-5

    After orientation, candidates get started with real work. They provide solutions to management problems, build themselves as leaders through training modules and better understand organizational leadership while executing various management-related tasks and assignments.

    Career Transition

    Week 6 Onwards

    The Young Professionals Development Programme comes with a dedicated training in career readiness enabling candidates to transition to graduate school and navigate professional career with ease.

  • Office Hours with the Dexterity CEO

    Every Sunday throughout the internship programme, candidates have the opportunity to be part of digital office hours with the Dexterity CEO. Office Hours are digital video meet-ups where candidates can ask questions, discuss goals and assignments and get further guidance in their careers directly from the CEO. As part of the commitment, the Dexterity CEO makes himself available to all interns through the internship programme and beyond once they become alumni.

  • As an emergency response, 1000 Internships Programme (now, YPDP) supported young Indians at a time when many of whom had lost their internship or job offers to the COVID crisis.
