We Are Thankful

Updated: Nov 25, 2023


Founder Andrew Walker with several 2023 Eleven+ interns


From all of us at Eleven+, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Indeed, there is much for Eleven+ to be thankful for:

  • The amazing partnerships we have with over 50 organizations that have signed on to host our interns, providing opportunities and mentorship that change the trajectory of our students' lives

  • The schools, universities, community mentors, and enrichment programs that provide access to talented students

  • The interns, who bring their drive, intellect, and enthusiasm to their internship opportunities, making us impressed and proud

  • You, our friends and supporters, who spread the word about what we're doing and generously support our organization; None of what we do would be possible without you

As we quickly approach the end of our third year, we can take a deep breath and reflect on where we've been and where we're going. After placing underserved students into 110 menaingful, paid internships, we've already seen the positive impact their experiences are having on their lives. We've started to see Eleven+ alumni land jobs quickly in their chosen fields as they finish school, and several have been hired permanently by the organizations that hosted them. But the payoff has been even greater as we've see Eleven+ interns come away from their summer experiences with new skills, relationships, and confidence that will serve them for the rest of their lives. We still have a lot of work to do, and look forward to growing our impact with your help.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Andrew Walker,

Founder & President


For Giving Tuesday next week, we have received another matching gift challenge to support our 2024 internships. Generous donors have agreed to match all donations, up to $10,000, that are received from today through the end of November, doubling the impact of your support. 85% of donations received directly support our interns' wages, making it possible for them to be paid while gaining valuable work experience. Your investment in these students is changing their lives.


Our mission

Eleven+ disrupts systemic inequality by providing underserved students with access to transformative, paid internship experiences that get them to even — and beyond.
