Topic of Internship
The PitCCh In Foundation, lead by Amber Sabathia, her husband, NY Yankee CC Sabathia, his mother Margie and a dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers who believe in making a difference in the lives of inner-city youth, was established in 2010 in Vallejo, California.

It is a place to which both she and her husband can relate. The foundation has many projects that they have developed in their home town but have extended their hand to the east coast since they now reside here. They continue to use their power and success for good, and have many upcoming projects in the works. They will continue doing what is very dear to their hearts: give back to the community.
Summary of Internship
At PitCCh In, I have been given the opportunity to experience a great amount of things
while acquiring new skills. One of the most important things Iíve learned is how to
work and communicate well with others. Itís an important skill needed to succeed in
any professional setting because working in a non-profit is literally a hustle by trying to
raise money from corporate and private institutions and getting donations from anyone.
Money is need in order to complete most if not all of the projects. My job as an intern is
to organize, file, create shipping labels, package and input data into the computer which
are typical intern duties. The best part of my internship definitely has to be attending
and working events. When a big event is coming up, Stephen Eriksen, the director of
development, comes from California and I work with him on all of the preparations and
in carrying out the event. At these events itís extremely easy and important to create new
relationships by networking with other people. Working the events are a lot of fun too. Also,
being that they are a part of the sports industry, Iíve gotten a taste for social media and
how their non-profit coincides with CCís career. This internship has definitely given me
a professional attitude and great opportunities to look forward to.
