Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient
“My internship this summer was incredible. I was able to experience and contribute to life at a nonprofit.”
During my time at The Advocates for Human Rights, I wrote news stories for the website. I produced press releases when important events occurred. I created email templates and wrote a mass email that was sent to the organization’s more than 11,000 contacts. I drafted an application for a $10,000 grant. I helped The Advocates manage their social media outlets and wrote Facebook and Twitter posts. I also helped organize and execute the silent auction for the organization’s annual fundraiser. I learned so much about human rights activism and advocacy work. I found role models among the staff at The Advocates. I learned that I love development work.
