During the summer of 2012, Agosto hosted six STEP-UP Achieve Minneapolis interns, and recently one of them submitted an essay about her experiences. Hafsa’s essay was the grand prize runner up from all those who submitted essays, and Agosto is proud of her efforts and of all of our interns.

Last year, Agosto approached STEP-UP with the idea of providing interns a unique learning and work experience in the IT sector. By giving young people a chance to gain perspective and confidence by participating in hands-on project work, Agosto believes that they will have a greater chance for placement and success in future employment. Helping to build a knowledgeable, confident, skilled and diverse future IT workforce can only help the IT sector as a whole, as well as the interns and Agosto.
