Summer Games 2019 Intern-Central South

The Summer Games is an innovative internship program that attracts some of the nation’s best and brightest students. The goal is to develop a breakthrough idea or solution for one of our clients’ most pressing, complex, and multidimensional problems. This competitive and collaborative program attracts thousands of applicants for several hundred slots. Simulating a real-world startup accelerator environment, the interns are divided into teams, each working on a different challenge. Throughout the Games, interns receive mentorship from senior leaders, collaborate and experiment in Booz Allen’s innovation ecosystem, solve problems using Booz Allen’s products and unique engagement models, and leverage the power of rapid prototyping. The summer culminates with a final Challenge Cup competition and presentation to senior leadership. A past winner took the challenge of helping blind individuals navigate by using new technology, creating a functioning prototype, and developing a business and market penetration plan. Teams have also helped develop an app that gives military commanders an easy way to track real-time and open-source information about developing situations such as sudden attacks, fighting human trafficking, and even tracking the spread of a disease worldwide. These internships are located throughout the US and will depend on the needs of the business and the skills of the applicants.
