Summer 2021 Interns

About the Social Institute 

The Social Institute partners with schools nationwide to empower students, parents, and educators to navigate social-emotional health, social media, and technology positively through comprehensive, gamified lessons that meet students on their level. By reinforcing character strengths like empathy, integrity, and teamwork and by showcasing their role models (from student leaders to U.S. Olympians), we help students be their best selves to “win at social” — social interactions and social media. We bridge the needs of students and parents. We have partnered with Ravenscroft School, Gaston Day School, The Bryn Mawr School, Gilman School, Woodward Academy, U.S. Olympic athletes, Duke Men’s Basketball, ESPN, and other forward-thinking institutions around the nation.

From a College Freshman and 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.” – Freshman at UNC-Chapel Hill
