Regular AVC readers may have noticed that after blogging about my once a day routine, I posted twice yesterday.
What happened is that I had been planning on blogging about Summer Bridge, a project we’ve been working on for the last few months, first thing Monday morning after the July 4th holiday.
But when I woke up, I had a DM from my friend Jonathan with some data about the content on AVC over the years and got excited to share it and did.
A colleague reminded me about doing the Summer Bridge post and so I published as planned mid-morning.
For those that may have missed my post about Summer Bridge, it is a new youth summer employment program for the neediest kids in NYC. It is a virtual/remote internship program that runs most of the month of August. The City and State are providing the stipends and companies provide remote “workplace challenges” for the kids.
USV is planning a workplace challenge around finding interesting startups working to address the climate crisis. I am excited to work with our teenage interns on that project next month.
If your company wants to work on an interesting problem with inner-city youth this summer, please consider participating in Summer Bridge. You can sign up here.
