"One of the reasons I decided to attend Colorado College was the PIFP program. I was deeply impressed with CC's commitment to placing its students in top-quality nonprofits working for the public good. I am so grateful for the opportunity to participate in PIFP, and to learn for myself how much I'd love a career in public interest work."

--Elliot Mamet, Summer Fellow, ACLU of Colorado
