According to their website, KOIP "is designed to streamline access for organizations to college students in the most cost efficient and cost effective manner and to create a pipeline of talent for future workforce."
KOIP supports a project-based learning approach and so we've worked with Sarah to create what we hope will provide her with a meaningful project to work on over the Summer related to marketing for small businesses.
