📜 Program Description

The Social Impact Fellowship is a three-month program for incoming low-income 11th and 12th graders to find mentors, grow their confidence, and give back. Students grow through structured mentorship, project-based learning, and social impact scholarships.

To help you succeed this summer, we’ve assembled a list of tools and platforms. These are the very same tools that established companies and startups use to collaborate every day. We hope to introduce students to them in order to reduce the knowledge gap of these tools when they work in the real-world.
