Hear how Erwin, a student at Mount Vernon High School in Fairfax County, obtained an internship at Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, a high-profile law firm with an office in Washington, D.C.

Academic Collaboration

Aim High launched in partnership with Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) and Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) to help fill the region’s tech skills gap.

The sooner our students have opportunities for work-based learning and industry experiences, the more excited they are about developing their passions and skills. This benefits all of Fairfax County.

As a minority and first generation woman in STEM, who was raised by an immigrant family, I never really had connections growing up. Aim High provides an equal opportunity for students of different backgrounds, cultures, races, talents, disabilities, and ethnicities to succeed in a tech career.

It is important at Deltek to intentionally create roles within the company, create an environment of belonging for all employees, and partner with initiatives like Aim High to find the talent and great people to join our workforce.
