A “Win-Win” for Everybody

Many of our host businesses find that working with students creates renewed energy.

Their employees look forward to mentoring our students and report that it helps them spotlight the importance of their own jobs to their companies.

Participation is also a great way for business leaders to help the future generation of employees by cultivating a more prepared and responsible workforce. A number of our business partners have hired Summit students as employees upon graduation.
