As part of Arlington's PRIME Internship program, Madelyn Wood was our very first Thinkabit Lab intern in Summer 2016, and she was involved in nearly every aspect of the Lab's construction. She even taught younger students programming and robocrafting.
This semester she won first place the Kaspar Awards for Excellence in the Arts for her photograph called Shadow Dancer.

“Thank you Urban Alliance for the great work you’ve done. This real life work experience is a real game changer in many people’s lives. Thank you to all the companies who already support Urban Alliance…and I would hope others hear how Urban Alliance is impactful for companies, and jump on it. I have too many jobs in Virginia I cannot fill…36,000 cybersecurity jobs to fill or they’re going to go elsewhere. The work that Urban Alliance does to get people in the workforce…we need to do this for the Commonwealth…we need to do this together.”
-Governor Terry McAuliffe
Employing local youth is good for business, and there is no shortage of eager youth from Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria public schools ready to intern this fall. That is where Urban Alliance comes in.
