Evaluation Excerpt

My time at Springboard Collaborative was intensely edifying. Springboard Collaborative's unparalleled approach to closing the so-called "literacy gap" epitomizes the dynamism of a non-profit with a sound mission and intricate strategies for achieving the mission.
—Laura Hausman '20

My best work experience this summer was definitely having the opportunity to form connections with the students and their families. I really enjoyed watching my students progress over the course of the summer and learn to love reading.
Camille Moeckel '20

 Springboard's program allowed me to play a major role in ensuring that the closing of the literacy gap was reached. Springboard's goal of helping those students who would have otherwise have had a degraded reading level catch up over the summer is truly motivational and inspiring. The internship was also very educationally enriching in that I not only gained important knowledge in educational affairs, but I also gained invaluable experience working in a rapidly expanding organization. —Lisha Han '20
