USA Strategies & Elmhurst College Mentoring-Protege-Internship Program

We believe it's important to invest in the next generation and giving back into the lives of college students and young adults. USA Strategies is now celebrating its ninth year in our partnership with Elmhurst College’s mentoring-protégé-internship program. 


We approach our student protege-internships differently. We’re not looking for paper-pushers, gophers, or errand-runners. We’re always seeking sharp, energetic, ambitious individuals who are serious about taking the first steps in their packaging, machinery and technology marketing career. 


After a collaborative analysis of strengths and weaknesses ranging from data analytics to interpersonal skills, we pair the protege-interns up with our staff to get them started on the next chapter of their upcoming profession.


Our students get tangible hands on experience that can’t be taught in a textbook working side by side with our team. 


We are proud to present our 2019 students below
