Employer Testimonial

“As a small, grassroots non-profit, it is nearly impossible to quantify the enormous impact we have received from having MIIS  interns as part of our team. Qualifying the impact of their value added to process and productivity, as well as quality relationships, can easily be summed up in one word: PRICELESS! Investing in our collective future through this opportunity has extremely high return on investment."

Kathi Speller, Executive Director, Community of Caring Monterey Peninsula
