A Note From Our Founders

February 16, 2024

Erika Hairston, Co-founder & CEO at Edlyft and Arnelle Ansong, Co-founder & CTO at Edlyft

Dear Edlyft Community,

Our hearts are filled with gratitude and nostalgia for the incredible journey we've shared with each and every one of you. Today, we announce that Edlyft’s Intern Development Program will live on through Onramp. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your companions on your computer science journey over the past three years.

Edlyft was born out of a shared passion for fostering a supportive community for students navigating the complexities of computer science education. Together, we've celebrated triumphs, overcome challenges, and forged connections that go beyond the boundaries of a classroom or an online platform. Your dedication and resilience have continually inspired us, and for that, we are eternally grateful.

As we bid farewell to Edlyft, we want to assure you that this is not the end of the road. We are thrilled to share that operations of our intern development program (IDP) have been acquired by Onramp, an organization that shares the same mission and values that guided Edlyft from its inception. This new chapter will ensure the continuity of the support you've come to rely on and the fostering of an environment where every student, especially those underserved, can thrive in their computer science pursuits.

We are confident that our legacy will live on, and the community we've built together will only grow stronger. Your trust and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind Edlyft's success, and we encourage you to embrace this upcoming change with the same open hearts that have defined our time together.

We express our deepest gratitude to each student, mentor, and supporter who has been part of the Edlyft family. Your stories, challenges, and triumphs will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

We cannot wait to see your continued success in new hands.

With our sincerest appreciation,

Erika Hairston and Arnelle Ansong

Co-Founders, Edlyft
