Summary of Internship

At Center for Hope and Safety, I do many different things. I mainly start out every day working with the children. This consists of watching and playing with the children, while their mothers are in meetings or having appointments. After I am done watching the children, they go back to their mothers, and then I go into my mentorís office and begin to do office work. This consists of filing, making copies, typing various different types of documents, and putting information into the shelters database. Overall, this internship has many different activities that will help in the learning experience of how Social Services really work, and hot they are beneficial to the people who need them.
