LiveNFK Career Launch


Norfolk’s Summer Career Launch 2024

The Downtown Norfolk Council, Greater Norfolk Corporation, and Norfolk Innovation Corridor are excited to kick off the tenth year of LiveNFK, a talent recruitment program designed to bring together summer interns and seasonal associates to network and experience what it’s like to live, work and play in Norfolk and the region. This summer’s LiveNFK program, which is also open to first-year employees, is a combination of professional development, networking sessions and social events. 


Companies and organizations can enroll their summer interns and associates here.

For questions or more information, please contact Emily Shield at or 757-452-6594. 


Two (2) $500 scholarships for school expenses (college or law school) will be awarded at the end of the program. Recipients will be selected based on engaged participation. First year employees participating in the program will be eligible to receive a gift card at the end of the program, based on engaged participation. 


Please contact Emily Shield at to discuss how your support can make a difference.
