Past student reflections:

“One of the things that makes me proud to be a USF student is our strong mission and how we continually work to fulfill it. As PSIP shows, USF is always working to find a new way to educate hearts and minds to change the world. My work at COH fit hand in hand with this goal.” - L. Gallagher

“I knew I wanted to do an internship over the summer with a non- profit or a start-up because of the high level and hands-on work I would get to do. Then Dayle comes up with this program that is the perfect fit. I needed to earn money for the school year. This way I could do both.” – Ari Brownstone class of 2012

“I am deeply indebted to the individuals who sponsored this program. I would not have considered working at a place like Glide Memorial if it were not for this internship program.” –Anonymous

“Not only has Glide Memorial Church radically changed my perspective of how I view other people, it has also changed my perspective of how I view myself.” -Anonymous
