Summer 2018 is officially here, and that means it's time for another year of The Denver Foundation's Nonprofit Internship Program. Over the next few months, 18 outstanding undergraduate students will be working and learning at nonprofit organizations across Metro Denver. Over the course of the summer, we'll be introducing you to all these interns and sharing their experiences as they navigate the nonprofit sector. Keep reading to meet our first three interns, Fran, Kaley, Efrata!
My name is Fran Huth and I am thrilled to be interning at the African Community Center this summer. I am finishing up my sophomore year at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I am studying English and Philosophy. This internship program is a unique opportunity to engage with individuals from very different backgrounds and cultures than myself, and I hope I can make a positive impact on their lives, as I am sure they will make one on mine. My favorite book is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, but I am always looking for new things to read!
I am currently a freshman, soon to be sophomore, at the University of Colorado Boulder studying psychology with a minor in women and gender studies. This summer I will be interning at the Heart & Hand center for youth and their families. I am excited to be a part of NPIP because I am passionate about learning how I can be a leader for social justice in my community. I cannot wait to collaborate and learn from my co-workers and peer interns this summer. Outside of school and work, I like to spend time in nature being active and I want to move to California after I graduate.
My name is Efrata Kirose and I am a first-generation college student attending CU Boulder. I am a junior studying International Relations and Business. This coming summer I will be interning at CEDS finance in Denver. I am excited to be a part of the NPIP because it is a great opportunity for me to gain insight into the nonprofit sector. I plan to work within the Non-Profit / Humanitarian field in the future and I believe that through interning with NPIP it will bring me one step closer. One fun fact about me is that knitting is my superpower. I really love knitting and if I was to be a superhero that would be my power.
