Matthew Zinman, founder of the Internship Institute in 2007 in Newtown, Pennsylvania, addressed the Dover Capital City Rotary Club at their luncheon meeting July 5.

The organization bridges the gap between education and employment by “Making Experience Matter and harnessing the power of internships to cultivate prosperity for students, veterans, employers, communities and economy overall,” said Zinman, who is reaching out to organizations in Delaware that could benefit from his program.

A 1989 graduate of Temple University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, Zinman launched his first career by internships in marketing communication, working for some of Philadelphia’s largest agencies, consulting nearly 100 companies. He has since managed and mentored more than 200 college interns and veterans. He and his wife, Erica, have two teenage children and live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
