Reflections from SLIP Employers

At the conclusion of the summer internships, SLIP asks the supervisors to access their experience with the program and intern. Employers consistently see themselves as receiving as much as they give:

  • As always SLIP sends stellar interns to our organization. There really isn’t much room for improvement.
  • Everyone in St. Louis needs to know what you are doing to improve the chances for young men and women in our community.
  • We love our summer interns. They are so helpful.
  • We have had interns through SLIP for many years and it is definitely a help to my department.
