Helping Students in Southern CA Gain Access to Health Science Immersion ExperiencesImpact Internships is a Southern California based non-profit dedicated to creating health science research and immersion experiences for high school students. Our immersion programs offer students firsthand access to a world of science researchers and practitioners that they would not encounter in high school. We recognize the considerable difficulty many high school students face in locating and securing quality mentorship and immersion experiences in the health sciences. While there are many available programs, these are exponentially outnumbered by the number of students searching for such opportunities. We work to ensure that our programs will be of the highest enrichment quality, while remaining accessible to a wide array of students and work to provide tuition-free scholarships and merit aid. By helping students now rather than later, we have the greatest chance to have a decisive impact on their future in the health sciences.
