I had the opportunity to catch up with five of the alumni we placed in internships this summer to hear about how their internship experiences have impacted their career journeys.

Hoy, le escribimos para celebrar los cambios en nuestro lenguaje, que se basan en esta nueva misión y visión compartida: nuestra historia, nuestro eslogan y el nombre de KIPP Through College. Las palabras importan, y es fundamental que nuestro lenguaje sea consistente con quiénes somos hoy, lo que aspiramos a ser y lo que representamos.
Informed by the voices of nearly 6,000 students, alumni, families, teachers, school leaders, and board members, KIPP’s new mission and vision represent a deeper partnership with families and communities, an expanded definition of student and alumni success, and a joint commitment to a more just world.
If you are looking for a book to read this summer with your child, check out these books and workbooks authored by our very own KIPP teachers that will be sure to educate, inspire and uplift.
We know representation matters but I would argue that colorful, diverse representation matters more.
It’s not just our KIPP students and alumni who have benefited from HBCUs. KIPP has many HBCU alumni among our teachers, leaders, and staff! We spoke with three KIPP Team & Family members about their experiences attending HBCUs, and their advice for KIPP juniors and seniors who might be considering these schools.
