What I liked
I liked that I was able to get a broad range of experience in different areas of a nonprofit setting, ranging from development to operations to finance to program development and beyond. My projects included recoding a vacation day tracker spreadsheet, editing promotional videos, building resources for the high school students we serve, and more.
I also liked the workplace culture which is based on feedback, employee well-being, collaboration, and learning from mistakes, among others. Given that I am involved in the nonprofit as a volunteer and as a paid student leader, I enjoyed being able to see the back-end of how the organization is run and get a novel viewpoint.
Lastly, I appreciated how much my perspective and voice was valued - I was treated as part of the team and not just given menial tasks to do, but rather valuable work, and I was asked about my personal learning goals so that the internship experience could be tailored to me.
