Evaluation Excerpt

The internship was eye-opening for me because I never imagined or expected to see so many families who were so committed to a Mandarin Immersion education for their children. Their teaching approaches and the way they carried the idea of "learning" was extraordinary. Their message and mission definitely promotes a way of learning that incorporates systemic social change as their goal is to grow lifelong learners which definitely was an attitude that was contagious for me as an intern as well.
—Katie Zhou '20

 My main task was redesigning their website. I was able to see a tangible result at the end of the internship and that was very satisfying. It was appropriately challenging, especially with no experience in website design prior to the internship. —Irma Qavolli '21

Applications for Summer 2019 will open in November 2018.
