As you can see by the pictures and quotes, we had another life-changing Summer Internship Program.  This was the first summer since 2019 (because of COVID) that we were able to have our internship program.  We did a summer program through Zoom the past two summers.  However, nothing can replace the students actually being at the job sites and having real-life experiences.  It is truly transformative!  Thank you for your continual support that enables us to continue to lift urban youth higher through higher level mentoring conversations and higher level experiences.

Lifting Urban Students Higher,
