"Nate has returned to college and is still glowing from his LSIP experience. Thank you so much for selecting him to the program, it was easily one of the best experiences of his young adult life, and has given him career focus and new confidence, as well as many new friends and colleagues. I’m a huge fan of LSIP and will be touting its many benefits." - Julie Evans, mother of Nate Evans, LSIP 2012
