Thank You, 2012 Interns and Volunteers!
We thank our four interns and volunteers from the summer of 2012: Truman Scholars Dominique Hazzard and Sarah Neitz, Bates College student Bridget Feldman, and early childhood classroom teacher Amy Rothschild. They worked on our Ask Me About campaign on Central America, the “this day in history” photo album for the Zinn Education Project on Facebook, and our recommended resource list for the Anti-Bias Curriculum.
While in DC they also had lots of opportunities to get out of the office for tours and forums. In fact, our interns frequently report that they enjoy interning with Teaching for Change because the work is meaningful and they get lots of opportunities to see the city. Here’s what Dominique had to say about her experience this summer:
As someone who has interned at poorly functioning nonprofit organizations, it was very beneficial to have the opportunity to observe an organization that runs so smoothly and has a tangible impact. The opportunity to sit in on meetings and attend events was especially useful in this respect.
– Dominique Hazzard, Truman Scholar, Summer 2012
We’re always looking for committed individuals to serve as interns and volunteers throughout the year. If you’re interested, take a look at some of our openings and read more about the experiences of past interns and volunteers.
