The City of Atlanta has launched Students2Startups, which will subsidize high-potential students, including those from backgrounds underrepresented in the technology industry, for entrepreneurial-focused internships at Atlanta-based startup companies. In addition, this innovative initiative will support Atlanta startups by meeting some of their tech talent needs – helping to retain more of Atlanta’s top talent in the city. Students and startups can get additional information and apply for the program through Invest Atlanta’s website at www.investatlanta.com/students2startups.

Spring has sprung at Woodruff Park in Downtown with a full lineup of free community programs.. Returning favorites include Saturday morning yoga and twice-a-month history tours. Each Wednesday during lunch, “Wednesdays in Woodruff” will present a community partner organization that will facilitate an educational activity in the Reading Room. Partners include the American Diabetes Association, the Atlanta Women’s Poetry Collective, and Wonderroot. While some may just want to enjoy their lunch, others can enjoy a chance to learn about screenprinting, composting, blackout poetry, and much more. The park is also the new host of Downtown Atlanta’s popular Food Truck Fridays, which will also feature live music and plenty of seating and umbrellas. The Game Cart is also open for those who love board and lawn games. To explore the full calendar, visit http://bit.ly/wpkcalendar.
