Georgetown University Freshman
Intern, Get Involved Foundation
"Working with Get Involved has been so inspiring for me. As a college freshman at Georgetown University, I have been able to use the skills I learned from Get Involved to focus my time and energy on the courses that matter to me, and allow me to make the greatest impact on my community!"
"This program has led me to uncover a new career interest, and has fueled my excitement for finding ways to help others."
Vivian Wu, 
Palo Alto High School Class of 2017
"Get Involved has allowed me to freely pursue my interests and curiosity. The diverse range of community service opportunities ensures that I can find an internship or community service event that I am truly interested in and meet others who share similar interests. It has allowed me to become more involved in marketing and business, and most importantly, it has allowed me to pursue my passion for computer science."
Jerry Huang, 
Palo Alto High School Class of 2017
"The skills I learned in my internship are helping me with research I'm now doing in college!"

Praise for Get Involved Palo Alto Community Service Program
"Get Involved has helped me grow so much as a student, as an intern, and as a person. Without the program, I don't think I ever would have discovered this passion, or been able to fully realize it. It's a truly unique experience that provides invaluable lessons that are extremely applicable to everyday life and the real world - a lot of which is exactly what students need as they begin to approach their post-high school career."
Candace Wang, 
Palo Alto High School Class of 2017
"This [program] improved my organization, management and event planning skills. Seeing how volunteer work has such positive effects on my peers' lives inspires me to keep volunteering and explore career pathways related to my community service endeavors."
Aidan Maese-Czeropski, 
Palo Alto High School Class of 2017
"The Get Involved academy has helped my daughter more than I could have ever expected. Not only did she find something she is interested in, and learned how to pursue that dream, but she also learned how to apply everything she took from the course to her interactions with professional adults. There is no better preparation for the adult-world than working in the Get Involved program!"
