Project Arizona offers meaningful and paid internships, academic seminar at the Arizona State University, broad networking opportunities and even more! All of that in the beautiful scenery of the Valley of the Sun, in the heart of Arizona.
Many young people keep telling us that Project Arizona meets their needs and career expectations but they simply do not have enough funds to take advantage of it. Besides the program costs there are some additional ones and after all it is quite difficult for people from developing countries to cover them. But we have an idea how to fix that problem!
We decided to launch “Raise me to the top!”: Campaign to elevate young talents. It is an innovative crowdfunding effort designed to make dreams possible. The Campaign supports selected ten individuals willing to realize their dreams by attending Project Arizona. It presents their real life stories and makes strong funding cause. Entire amount of raised money will be dedicated for scholarships. Each student will have a separate virtual fundraising wallet showing how much more he or she needs to raise. In order to help the cause, the Language of Liberty Institute nobly gives each of the selected talents first $500 to start with. Now it’s time to raise the remaining amount. And we believe it’s possible!
You can contribute to the Project Arizona on this website. Select your favourite participants and make their dreams come true!
