"I had an absolutely life-changing summer thanks to Shepherd Consortium and CVOEO. My summer internship introduced me to the all-important work that community action agencies and other non-profit groups do across the U.S. every day. I was able to take LBJ’s Economic Opportunity Act right from the textbook and witness its real-life application in helping folks to fully realize the American dream that is too often limited to too few."
