The Illuminate Internship Program aims to provide underrepresented students with an equal opportunity to discover and excel in meaningful, high-impact careers. Most students don't have a way to visualize themselves in careers that they have no direct connection to; we bridge that gap by giving them an experience that helps them to make informed decisions about whether to pursue a career in technology.
