Students felt more prepared to enter the world of work after completing their internship.
"Through the internship program, we were able to provide the youth an overview of what goes behind the scenes at a non-profit organization. It allowed them to acknowledge and cultivate a deeper sense of responsibility towards their community."
"Connecting with youth, seeing them learn and give their own suggestions on tasks would benefit any company. These youth provide a different view that you wouldn't otherwise have—not even with college interns. Additionally, it gives young people the chance to work in an operating corporation as opposed to a typical retail job."
" "It was a blast seeing engineers at work; for safety measures, my internship would hold Zoom calls for everyone to chat and safe distance as not to get sick, but the environment was very nice. I enjoyed talking, connecting, and meeting new people, and I wish them the best in their careers."
