I'm interning in the activities and outreach department. I'm responsible for creating all of the flyers for activities, planning crafts, getting together supplies for activities, filling out paperwork, etc.


I've been able to help many older adults with a lower income find resources to help them.

What advice would you give?

I would recommend taking the least amount of classes possible while doing your internship so you can get your hours in. Balancing internships, work, school, and my social life is key along with time management.
