dc.description.abstractThis summer I had the opportunity to complete an internship in non-profit management through an organization called GreeNest. Their mission is to aid individuals and families in their transition from unsafe living conditions into sustainable housing. This was my third internship involving non-profit work in my hometown, and these experiences have given me insight into how organizations work collectively within the community. As government support programs shrink, the demand for non-profit services grow. Non-profit organizations adapt to meet these needs by creating a network where organizations rely upon and refer to other non-profits within this web of services. Looking ahead, these internships have inspired me to enter the world of politics and public policy to help create and strengthen the government support programs that these non-profits work to supplement.

dc.description.panabstractNavigating nonprofits from different organizational perspectives, our summer experiences involved engagement with both local and global missions. While one panel member aided families in the transition from unsafe living conditions to sustainable housing in North Carolina, another panelist in New York provided legal services to LGBTQ and HIV-positive individuals. From Washington DC, our third panelist used digital media to raise awareness about human rights violations in South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Our fourth panel member helped create policies that advocate for quality education inclusive to all students in Ghana. Our final panelist in Boston contributed to research to further resettlement efforts for refugees overseas. The non-profit organizations where we worked spanned the globe; the projects we pursued were as diverse as the communities with which we engaged.
