We provide a flexible, casual working culture and a 12-week theory, exercise and experience driven program that can be adapted to work with demanding course or work schedule; however, this accelerated pace has proven too intense for undergraduates. To receive the most benefit from the accelerated program, we suggest this be considered only by students who are considering Master’s programs or are nearing completion of their BS. We take great pride in making this a fulfilling extension of your learning experiences. Because of the wide variety of businesses we work with we are often able to cater to the experiential goals an intern may have for this experience. Students who have excelled in the theories and exercises presented in this program may be considered for contract or employment opportunities upon completion of this program.
