If you've ever had an internship, especially one that changed your career or life more generally, please consider supporting life-changing internships for under-resourced youth supported by one of my favorite non-profits, The Urban Alliance.
Debbie, an Urban Alliance intern at our Virginia Tech Arlington Advanced Research Center, had people in tears describing her internship experience at tonight's fundraiser.
You can support interns like Debbie at https://www.spring2action.org/p2p/38785/team-nova
There are other ways to support these interns, including mentoring an intern at your work, or sponsoring an internship at an Arlington, Alexandria, or Fairfax nonprofit. Send an email to us at Thinkabit@vt.edu or Workforce@vt.edu, or contact Urban Alliance directly at https://theurbanalliance.org/locations/northern-virginia/
