> *Summer internship programs*
> UNAVCO will manage three internship programs this summer with a total of
> 20 interns (RESESS, 8 interns, Geo-Launchpad, 4 interns, USIP, 8 interns).
> We are following University of Colorado guidance as well as Boulder County
> Health Department and the Colorado Department of Public Health to ensure a
> safe experience for interns.
>
> As such, we will institute a hybrid model for RESESS and Geo-Launchpad.
> USIP interns have the option of being all remote or in person (we do not
> provide housing for USIP). Geo-Launchpad and RESESS Interns will be in
> Boulder for the first 5 weeks of the program and complete the final 6 weeks
> from their home locations. This will allow for cohort building and bonding
> as well as provide an opportunity for any field work that may need to
> occur.

> The other significant change is that the professional development
> programming is being reviewed and revised, led by Anika and Kelsey.
