We are not simply given the networks, we are presented with amazing opportunities to meet and network with senior level people here in D.C. I would like to believe that my story is solid proof that the Aurora internship program changes lives.
— Kevin Powell, Aurora Intern through the Washington Scholars Program, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Reserve Affairs / Material & Facilities
Kevin was our first experience with the intern program and we found it to be an extraordinary experience. His professionalism and performance in this complex Joint environment was so compelling that all who supervised him agreed that we would hire him immediately as a GS13 and see unlimited potential in him.
— Richard O. Wightman, Jr., Deputy Assistance Secretary of Defense, Material & Facilities
The mentorship aspect of the Aurora Foundation’s Internship Program was very unique and extremely beneficial to me during this transition period.
— Irna May Connor, Aurora intern with SNVC
David’s work here at CACI opened the door for other student veteran interns to come through and intern here as well. His experience at CACI allowed him to meet other veterans employed by this company who, upon learning who David was, were more than willing to help him succeed.
