Internships with Samaritans Steps is a lot different from other internships. As the founder I want to ensure that everyone who interns with us gets something out of the experience. Our internships are very interactive and hands on, and interns are a valued member of our team and not just someone who we pass on busywork to.
We have a management/entrepreneurship internship as well as a PR internship which you can find more info about above. Here’s what Jazmine, our first intern, had to say about her experience:
“After interning for a Non-profit Organization concentrating on Homelessness, I have definitely found that this is my ultimate goal. I have learned the in’s and out’s what it takes to be a leader and advocate for homelessness…I truly enjoyed interning for Samaritans Steps. This was there first time having an intern and I believe we were successful in reaching the organizations and my personal goals this semester. The company was able to teach me valuable skills and show me resources that I wouldn’t have known without them. Kevin was a mentor and helped me network with countless people in order to make my name more known within this specific industry. I was able to apply previous skills such as work with social media, interpersonal communication, writing and advocacy to Samaritans Steps. I was excited to go to my internship everyday because it was a laid-back, comfortable and fun environment that I wanted to be in. There was never a dull moment where I was sitting at a desk. I was actively participating in the community almost every time I went into my internship.”
