Strong/Gault Social Advancement Internship Grant Recipient
“The work I did has furthered my interest in future advocacy work and understanding of the legislators and community members whose decisions so greatly affect the people who organizations like Alabama Possible work so tirelessly to help.”
I believe the main challenge I faced in my internship was mainly in lack of previous experience in an office-based job. While Alabama Possible worked with me to flush out my strengths in a way that allowed for tangible aid to the organization, there was certainly a learning curve. However, as a result of the internship, I was able to gain an immense amount of experience making me much more capable as time went on in the internship and for prospective future work as well. The first of my projects was working to revamp the image of the organization through work on the website, blog, style guide, tabling events, and work done in our direct service capacity. In my work to further the organization through marketing to my age group (including the students with whom we worked with) I accomplished a great deal of furthered reach for the organization, which I would say was my greatest accomplishment in the job.
