What an amazing experience looks like!

Authored by: Sarafina Shukuru, Intern from the Refugee Program

My experience as an intern at Youth Services was uniquely awesome. I thought it would be challenging and something I wouldn’t be able to handle, but it turned out to be the opposite of what I expected.


I did and learned from various tasks. I helped at the warehouse, cleaning, and scanning some papers. Each day was different. I remember one day, all I  did was fixing brochures. Other days, I would be scanning some volunteer paperwork and calling to invite future candidates to join.

The experience was as an office specialist. If I has the opportunity, I would defiantly do this again.  Would I recommend someone to come be an intern? Of course I would. Who wouldn’t want to have an amazing experience getting to learn about what it is like to work with people who are dedicated in helping kids?

It was a great opportunity. For someone who wants to be an intern here or even volunteer, I would say do it. You won’t regret the decision.
