Summary of Internship

Being an intern for the Nulites of Bergen County gave me the opportunity for me to help the people of my community. Working with people who dedicate their lives to giving back and helping the people in their community was a wonderful experience. My task whole working with these people every Thursday was networking, making phone calls creating flyers, sending e-mails, faxing documents; help with setting up events, getting sponsor and donation for events. With doing this I was able to see firsthand how hard it is to get things going in a program that is nonprofit. One interesting thing about my internship is that we get to see the change that happens within my community first hand. The Nulites is also a program for the youth so everything that we do is to empower and help maintain greatness within them. I think this gives me a great way to see how I can help my community in many differ ways.
