From a Former Intern

“My experience interning with The Social Institute was by far the highlight of my summer. Each day, I was inspired by the leadership, camaraderie, and grit that this team consistently exhibits. It was incredible to participate in the contagious energy of a first-class start-up while having the chance to make a real impact on the company and on students across the nation. A takeaway that I gained from this experience that deeply resonated with me is that there is no time to waste to get started. The team encouraged me to be resourceful, ask questions, and not be afraid to make mistakes. The Social Institute family created an environment where I could grow both personally and professionally, and for that, I could not be more grateful.” – Student at UNC-Chapel Hill
