My experience in YouthRoots has been multifarious regarding the incredible lessons I’ve learned and relationships I’ve made during my participation. I joined YouthRoots in the 2017-18 year during my senior year of high school with hopes of finding a genuinely fulfilling outlet to enrich my community.
Since then, I’ve attended my first year of college and found myself with the tools possible to engage with my university. During the summer I had the chance to intern, and the experience was nothing short of incredible.
The 9 am treks to the office have always proved worthwhile. With smiling faces and a warm, “Good Morning!”, this internship has given me the skills I’ll use moving forward. I’ve learned techniques such as writing grants, analyzing data, and reviewing the curriculum.
