The Columbus Learning Cooperative serves to connect internship opportunities available in the community with youth looking to gain real world experience. While some schools or programs might only allow for a few hours of interaction a week, we provide our members with the flexibility to devote the time necessary to their internships.

If you want to connect with some passionate and driven youth or if you just want to support our cause, consider becoming a partner. Let's work together in creating a brighter future for all.
