In January 2017, we were a group of technology students frustrated by the lack of mission-driven technical internships — so we decided to do something about it. We launched a blog, newsletter, and online community to rally our peers around the idea that being a technologist can mean more than working on a food delivery app. Soon thereafter, we created the Civic Digital Fellowship, a government internship for innovative technical students. Our Fellowship now has 50 alumni, while our greater movement reaches over 2,000 college students across the country. Together, we're redefining what it means to create impact as technology students.
