Reviews

Summer Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Washington, DC
“I was part of an intern program, so there were about 30 other interns there. There were always professional development programs for the interns, and there was an oppurtunity to learn about what other people were doing.”

UELIP Intern

May 2017 - August 2017 Washington, DC
“I got to learn a ton of information about how urban public school districts work behind the scenes. I also got a good work life balance so was able to enjoy the city.”
