From Disaster Relief to Public Health: Booz Allen Interns are Changing the World for the Better

Jun 20, 2018 2:55 PM ET

This month, nearly 400 talented university students from across the country join Booz Allen Hamilton as Summer Games interns. Over the next 10 weeks, they’ll compete to solve 85 tough challenges. Their ultimate goal? To change the world.

The Booz Allen Summer Games are here. 

The Summer Games is an innovative internship program that simulates a real-world startup accelerator. The interns are divided into teams—with each team developing a breakthrough idea or solution for some of the most pressing, complex, and multidimensional challenges Booz Allen’s clients face. Mentored by senior leaders, the interns collaborate and experiment in Booz Allen's innovation ecosystem, using the firm’s products and engagement models to rapidly produce functional solutions to client problems.

This summer, some of the challenges the interns are working on include developing a disaster evacuation model, exploring a technological solution for a mobile grocery store, creating options to conduct medical appointments from home, and harnessing data science and technology to tackle public health issues for society's greater good. 

During the program’s tenth and final week, interns will present their Summer Games projects to a panel of judges, who will select 10 teams to advance to the final round. Those teams will compete to win the Challenge Cup, presenting their projects to executive leadership. Only one team will be declared the winner of the 2018 Summer Games.

Stay tuned for updates on how Booz Allen’s Summer Games interns are tackling challenges, solving problems, and making the world a better place, here.
