For students

For K-12 and College Students

"Beyond Z introduced me into the real world outside of academics! My interviewing and networking skills have definitely grown - I have met some incredible people and stayed in touch with many of them. My decision to enter the Education field has been reinforced through my time at BZ as well!"

For Volunteers

"I loved getting to know the kids and hanging out with them - we got to know each of their personalities really well. I particularly loved watching them plan the Hackathon and seeing their efforts pay off. Their excitement for coding, planning, and leading at Beyond Hacks was contagious and I was thrilled for them."

For Partners

"Beyond Z's mission is so important – provide leadership development to young people, especially first-generation college students, so that they are positioned to excel at the highest level and become global leaders.

I hire Beyond Z interns because they are exceptionally talented. They are smart, passionate, and driven college students who get results."

Patrick O'Donnell
Vice President of Parent and Family Engagement, Teach For America

"All young people should be able to dream without boundaries. I am excited to be an inaugural partner with Beyond Z because their curriculum and programming will help to level the playing field for under-represented populations lacking resources and human capital necessary to reach the highest levels of leadership."
