 100% of our past interns would recommend a Nourish International internship to a friend.

My favorite aspect of working with Nourish was the consistent intersection of personal and professional development that I experienced. I have become progressively more comfortable with taking risks and pushing myself to take more creative approaches to my work here at Nourish. I really appreciate the time that the staff takes out of their busy schedules to invest in each of the interns and ensure that we are being exposed to opportunities for both personal and professional development through this internship.

-       Frances Schick, Chapter Support Intern August 2013 – May 2014

I learned a great deal about how a non-profit is run. I loved being in the office with inspiring, driven people who worked hard for a cause they were very passionate about. I loved the office environment—it was very positive and fun, but challenging and motivating at the same time.

-       Natalie Burke, Chapter Founder Intern, January 2014 – May 2014

This internship was a great opportunity to learn about a growing nonprofit and how it operates. Aside from being a huge learning opportunity, this internship was fun! I loved getting to work in an open and welcoming office, and getting to know the other interns and staff members.

- Laura Grier, Administrative Assistant Intern, January 2014 – May 2014
