[While mentoring Changemakers,] I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to pay the knowledge that I've gained over the years forward--in terms of research experience, career advice, as well as technical skills that were helpful for the mentees' projects. As an added bonus, I also enjoyed learning about some new problem areas & tools through the experience!Suhani Vora, Google
These students are extraordinary. The fact that they have access to very current, open-source tools means they can learn things and work on projects that would never have been possible even a few years ago. Supporting their continuing journey with earlier-in-their-education, real-world internships will not only keep them engaged, but serve to influence corporate culture towards the better.Richard Sternin, EY
