Host Testimonials

“Our intern was a great problem solver. He helped provide key capacity on a project that was over capacity and allowed us to provide a better experience to our teachers. Our funder was also very impressed with the work completed by our intern!”
“Our intern came equipped with the mindset, skills and knowledge in the areas of need. She was equipped with the skills and eager to learn. The possibility of interns working beyond the summer is probably important to nonprofits that had a great match with their interns. Luckily, we were able to offer our intern an opportunity beyond the summer.”
“I appreciated the level of professionalism and technical capability of our intern. She was exceptionally mature for a college sophomore. Her problem-solving skills, attention to detail and applied knowledge of computer science was impressive.”
