Congratulations to Our First Booz Allen Hamilton

Intern Cohort!

Our talented and dedicated Booz Allen Hamilton Intern cohort successfully completed their internships after an amazing eight weeks of working directly with the Booz Allen team and our BroadFutures, Inc. mentors and coaches. This cohort is the first class of their kind to go through our pilot program with Booz Allen Hamilton.

Each of the interns made great strides and achieved new heights in their professional skills and workplace preparedness. Thank you again Booz Allen Hamilton for your partnership and congrats to our graduating class!

Employer Spotlight

This month we would like to highlight our partnership with Atlas Performing Arts Center. Atlas is a leading theater venue dedicated to showcasing art, dance, music, film, and everything in between. Located at the center of H Street, Atlas is a cultural pillar of the D.C. art scene.

The Atlas team has partnered with us for several years now and is currently hosting two BroadFutures interns. When asked to reflect on our partnership thus far, Director of Operations, Jarrod Bennett shared, “Our collaboration with BroadFutures has been truly exceptional. We take immense pride in nurturing our interns’ growth and witnessing them flourish into integral members of our Atlas team. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a rewarding journey.”

Thank you Atlas Performing Arts team. We value your partnership!

Intern Spotlight – Ben Schlaff

We would like to introduce to you Winter ‘24 participant, Ben Schlaff! Ben is originally from the Boston area and moved to DC last year. This winter, Ben is excited to be interning at Mi Vida where he busses tables and supports the kitchen staff. Ben is most “excited to learn more about how a restaurant is run on multiple different levels.”

When asked his favorite part of BroadFutures so far, Ben shared, “My favorite part has been getting to meet a lot of new people in the area.” Ben’s patience and thoughtfulness have brought so much to our Winter cohort.

Keep up the awesome work, Ben!

Women’s History Month Reflections

March was a celebratory month for many reasons! Both Neurodiversity Celebration Week and Women’s History Month uplifted the many voices of change makers in our community.

In recognition of Women’s History Month, our team sat down with Sam Martin, a guest on our 2023 Lived Experience Panel. Sam is a driven and passionate self-advocate and young professional who will be graduating from Gettysburg College this year with a degree in Political Science, Public Policy, and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Sam interned at the National Women’s Political Caucus and Public Religion Research Institute here in DC.

In conversation with BroadFutures, Sam reflected on her experiences as a neurodivergent woman in the workplace. Her takeaway piece of advice for current and future interns was to, “Listen to what your brain needs. Every time you listen to your brain, you only grow stronger. You become a stronger individual, you become a stronger employee, you become a stronger student.”
