Mentor(s):Jim Luce

Topic of Internship

Non-Profit

Background Information

The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation is not a typical non-profit corporation. The organizationís mission is to support young global leadership impacting social change and the NGOs that support them. The organizationís objective includes encouraging NGOs and NGO leadership to partner and unite with other NGOs that could profit from each other and allowing more than 80% of the funds to flow towards social change. The James Jay Dudley Luce foundation is affiliated with well known establishments and organizations such as the following: Roosevelt Island Visual Art Association, Rubin Museum of Art, United Nations University, Isaac J. Kassin Fund, David Lynch Foundation, God's Love We Deliver, and Stonehenge. One unique part of The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation is that the organization, and the founder Jim Luce, acknowledges Luce Leaders and grants Luce Awards to commendable non-profit establishments and groundbreakers.

Summary of Internship

As an intern at The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation, I was given an exceptional opportunity to see all of the work that goes into building a successful non-profit organization by attending upbeat charity events such as the gala for the University of Haiti and the reception of the Luce Leader award at the Skadden-Arps office in Times Square. This is not a typical internship, because every time I come in, I had something different to do. I remember one day when I entered the Stonehenge/Luce Space on 2nd Avenue, I was asked to paint the walls white with other interns, when just two weeks ago my mentor painted the walls a dark green/blue! From painting walls to attending events with the President of AMC Networks, TiVO, CBS, PBS, and the executive director of Breaking Bad, there is nothing boring that could possibly happen as an intern at the James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation. As the founder and president of a non-profit organization, It Ends Today, Inc., I have learned some of the tools that Mr. Luce has used to benefit his organization that I will use to benefit my organization. I do not think that I will ever forget this experience as an intern with Jim Luce and the entire internship family at the Luce Foundation.
