"The Develop For Good Team we worked with was amazing. The students added an extra dose of creative energy to our project. They thoroughly researched competitors and came in with a point of view for how best to design our app experience. They shared their perspective, responded to feedback well, and delivered everything we needed on time. We could not have gotten as far as we did without them"

“It was exciting to work on a real-world problem with an interdisciplinary team. Getting different perspectives from the project managers, developers and designers helped inform our design decisions and made our project that much better. I also had the opportunity to mentor some designers who were in 2nd year of college which was a great experience for me because I want to get more into the mentoring side of design”

"Through Develop For Good, I've been able to land several UI and UX designer interviews and enhance my portfolio. It has given me the real world experience I lacked as a student and paved the way to other opportunities. Develop For Good is amazing and I would definitely help out again!"

“I was attracted to this particular project because a couple of months ago my mother was diagnosed with cervical leiomyosarcoma. Being a relatively rare cancer, she was directed to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Genomic Sequencing for cancer patients is so important in regards to access to personalized treatment but also preventative care for the patient's family.”

"This program has honestly been one of the best hands-on learning experiences I've ever had. It has taught me more about how to be a better product manager and a designer more than any of the online courses/books I have ever been through. [...] I have not only learned how to improve my design process, but also improved my time-management, product assessment and organization skills."

Working as a product manager with Develop For Good gave me the opportunity to utilize my educational background and experiences to make real social impact in the community around me! It also gave me real-world, professional experience and expanded my network, both of which will serve me well as I advance in my education and career!”

“We are so grateful to Develop for Good for their amazing help. There is no way we could have even dreamed to have such capable help available to us without this program, as we are on a very limited budget and our constituencies needs dictate how we use any resources available. It's too difficult to find funding to get the sort of help we really needed, but only were able to receive thanks to this program!”

“Develop For Good has been instrumental in helping our team of scientists to share thousands of specimen data with the public. These data will be uploaded to the Smithsonian’s online database for research and educational purposes. Undoubtedly, this important outreach project would not have happened on such a vast scale without this organization’s help”

“Working with Develop for Good has given me an opportunity to connect with other peers, make new friends, and learn new skills together! This has been a great way to continue to socialize (safely) and with purpose during such an isolating time from the pandemic. It's been super cool being part of an organization that holds so much potential to continue learning and creating impact!”

"Develop for Good provided us with smart, creative and mature students who were able to effectively take the WHO/UNICEF tool for improving water, sanitation and hygiene in health care facilities and create a simple and robust application to better track and make local improvements. [...] This type of tool is more important than ever with COVID-19, and fundamentals such as hand hygiene and water are incredibly important to keeping patients and health workers safe."
