Illumina Interns Donate Over 500 Hours to Complete Fifteen Social Impact Projects
Each summer, our Illumina interns put our culture of giving back into action by completing a social impact project. The application of skills-based volunteering is just another way we aim to embed Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into every facet of Illumina and support the organizations that champion our values of building a healthier, more sustainable, and more equitable future for all.
97 interns donated over 500+ hours to complete fifteen high-impact projects that pushed the nonprofit’s mission forward.
This year, Illumina partnered with Mission Edge to help us bring this program to life and continue to make social impact a cornerstone of our internship program.
Due to the success of the program in our pilot years, this year we expanded the program globally to include our UK based interns in Illumina’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.
Our interns completed projects for the following nonprofits:
- Coming up Rosies
- Creating Coding Careers
- Forum For The Future
- Generation STEAM
- Genetic Alliance
- Greater Than Tech
- Jessie Rees Foundation
- Mitzy Makes It
- Partners in College Success (PICS)
- San Diego Squared
- Solana Center for Environmental Innovation
