A Successful Conclusion to our 2019 Summer Cohort!
On August 9th, we celebrated the successful completion of our largest program to date, serving 36 interns and partnering with 33 employers.
We are grateful to all of our new and returning inspired employer partners who hosted our interns and provided them with invaluable experiences and critical support. We are also thankful to our parents, staff and donors for their partnership in ensuring a successful summer program. We appreciate those who took time out of their busy work days to come to our final intern presentations and employer recognition. We feel so fortunate to have this incredible community supporting us!

Jack Hostetler - our featured August Intern Spotlight! A 19-year-old from Alexandria, Virginia, Jack enjoys cooking and learning about history. He plans to attend college in the spring and eventually become a classics or history professor.
Jack recently completed the BroadFutures summer 2019 program, and he was an incredible addition to our largest cohort yet. Willing to complete any assignment thrown his way, Jack proved to be a diligent, committed intern for The Cormac Group. His assignments included attending hearings on the Hill, including the Mueller Hearing, summarizing the hearings into a comprehensive report, and many other research tasks on a wide variety of topics, including cryptocurrency, healthcare, and education. When reflecting upon his experience with BroadFutures, Jack noted that the program helped him "
light the path I want to take to succeed in the future."
It has been a pleasure working with you, Jack, and we can't wait to see what you accomplish in the future!!
