Beyond Reserve Blog

Beyond Reserve internships with partner organizations, both domestic and abroad, enhance the WRA experience and allow our students to distinguish themselves among their peers. It positions them to consider the question "What Will You Pioneer?" in engaging and authentic ways.

During the summer of 2017, 23 WRA students are participating in Beyond Reserve, broadening their horizons, growing as young adults and adding to their portfolio of accomplishments. This year's participants are working with: Baylor Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University Genetic Research Program, Caterham Exchange Program, Cleveland Clinic, ELISA, International Summer Science School - Heidelberg, Garfield Center for Public Leadership (Hiram College), Record Publishing, TheStoryIs, TechStyleLAB, Morgan Stanley, Little Tikes, Robert Portman Congressional Staff, Apple's World Wide Developers Conference and the Akron Rubber Ducks.
