My internship experience at Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic was absolutely amazing. While mastering the many skills that are crucial in an efficiently functioning office environment and observing how a non-profit functions, I had the unique opportunity to help make an impact in a child’s life. If that wasn’t enough, I got to do all of this while surrounded by a welcoming, dedicated and incredible staff.
I worked in the program services department, which is responsible for most of the logistics in the wish-granting process. I got to witness and assist with almost every single step necessary in granting a wish. It is absolutely magical to see an idea grow from three simple phrases (I wish to be, I wish to go, and I wish to have) into a marvelous and absolutely original wish!
Throughout my three months with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, I learned a lot and got to interact with remarkable people dedicated to an amazing mission. It was a great privilege working for Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic. I loved every aspect of my internship! Thank you!
