In their words

"I can’t think of a better way to have spent my summer. I got to learn about my hometown through service work and field trips. I had great mentors at ASI and learned a lot from the other fellows as well. I would like to be involved in something like ASI in the future, either as an associate, board member or volunteer. I think the aspect of ASI that I found most interesting was the leadership. I really enjoyed seeing how the board made decisions for the nonprofit and discussed strategy for expanding the its reach and influence while as increasing its funding. This helped me realize that nonprofits do share many of the goals of businesses and have to consider many of the things that businesses focus on."


"Lev was an asset to our team this summer. He was flexible with tasks, he produced high quality work and provided insight and ideas that were utilized. He has a great attitude and was a team player."
