About the Education Trust

The Education Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college, and forever closing the achievement gaps that separate low-income students and students of color from other youth. Our basic tenet is this: All children will learn at high levels when they are taught to high levels.

The Education Trust advances its mission along several fronts, from raising its voice in national and state policy debates to helping teachers improve instruction in their classrooms. Regardless of where it occurs, our work maintains a relentless focus on improving the education of all students, and particularly those students whom the system has traditionally left behind.

Internship Program

The Education Trust internship program is for individuals who believe that ALL students can achieve at high levels and want to work as part of a team committed to that goal. The program is designed for undergraduates, recent graduates and graduate students who are capable of doing staff-level work under minimal supervision. Interns are treated as members of the staff and are expected to perform a wide variety of tasks.

Interns work in close consultation with designated Education Trust staff to develop and execute projects that will advance the organization’s agenda while allowing interns to broaden their professional skills and experiences.

Public Relations/Marketing: Give a Gift to Make a Difference



The purpose of this presentation is to invite schools and colleges nationwide to participate in the Give a Gift to Make a Difference internship program at UltimateRegistry.com.

This program allows students to receive hours by contacting local charities and asking them to create a gift registry at UltimateRegistry.com. Students will also be required to contact the media (local newspapers or radio stations) to advertise the program. Advertisements will encourage people to visit UltimateRegistry.com and give a gift to their favorite charity.

The Give a Gift to Make a Difference internship program greatly helps local charities by giving them the opportunity to inform their community of exactly which items or products they are in need of.

This program also helps students by giving them valuable lessons in business, marketing, negotiating, public relations, and, of course, charitable giving.

With the help of intern students throughout the United States, we expect to make Give a Gift to Make a Difference the single most successful program that interns can participate in to help their local communities.

This program will enable student interns to truly make a difference in their community while gaining useful job experience and learning valuable business lessons.

UltimateRegistry.com allows users to create a registry for any occasion; i.e., Weddings, Baby Showers, Birthdays, Holidays, New Homes, etc.

UltimateRegistry.com features millions of products from many of the nation’s top merchants; i.e., Wal*mart, Target, Macy’s, Sears, Best Buy etc., and some of the most popular websites, such as Amazon.com.

UltimateRegistry.com enables people to compare products and prices from multiple stores and register for gifts from multiple retailers in one convenient website.

UltimateRegistry.com is powered by it’s parent company, WS Publishing Group, perhaps the most successful independent publishing company in the United States. WS Publishing Group has published over 80 best selling titles and has sold over 3 million books in topics such as weddings, health, children's, parenting, home buying/selling, home improvement, self-help and cooking.

WS Publishing Group also publishes HYPERLINK "http://www.WeddingSolutions.com" www.WeddingSolutions.com, one of the most popular wedding planning websites in North America.


The Give a Gift to Make A Difference program allows local and national charities to create their own gift registry page at UltimateRegistry.com. On this page, charities can register for all the items they need to run their charity; i.e., books, furniture, toys, blankets, computers, etc.

Users will soon be able to visit UltimateRegistry.com and click on the banner labeled “Give a Gift to Make a Difference” which will be located on the home page, and then select the registry page of their favorite local charity. They will then be able to purchase gifts from the list of items which that charity has registered for. All gifts purchased will be shipped directly to the charity.

Users will have the option of either purchasing a gift outright, contributing cash towards a gift, or simply donating cash towards the charity.

The sad reality in today’s world is that people are giving fewer donations to charities each year. This is not because we are becoming less generous as a nation. It is because people are losing confidence that the donations they make are truly getting to those in need. With only 10-20% of the money donated to some charities reaching those in need, it is no wonder that people are losing faith in charitable organizations.

Because 100% of the gifts donated to charities through the Give a Gift to Make a Difference program will reach someone in need, UltimateRegistry.com is helping charities restore the confidence of the people who make donations. We expect that people will be much more generous knowing that their contributions will not be wasted in unnecessary overhead expenses.

Participating in the Give a Gift to Make a Difference program is a great learning experience for students wishing to enter the fields of marketing or public relations.

Successful candidates will help the PR department of UltimateRegistry.com promote the Give a Gift to Make a Difference program to charities and the media nationwide.

Students will learn how to develop relationships with these community leaders. They will learn how to market and promote a worthwhile program. They will learn and have the opportunity to set goals and see results.
