The project provides summer interns and partners with institutes of higher learning to provide meaningful work study opportunities. These college internships create connections between young adults and their rural communities by providing professional internship opportunities in Northeast Iowa for Northeast Iowa students. In each instance the students are given opportunities to improve higher level skills and build their professional potential. The project has created connections between students and local and regional communities and received overwhelming support from community leaders.
