Meet The Interns: Elizabet, Johnny, Alejandra

The Denver Foundation

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, Elizabet, Johnny, and Alejandra!

Elizabet Garcia

This summer I will be interning at the Northern Colorado People's Alliance. I am excited to get more involved in the Denver Community. I am currently a second year at the University of Denver double majoring in International Studies & Spanish with a minor in Business Administration.  I wanted to be part of the Non- Profit Internship Program because I saw it as an opportunity to get more involved in the community while also doing some hands-on work. I hope to take what I learn this summer and incorporate it into the leadership positions I carry on my campus. Fun fact, I am a twin!


Johnny Garcia

My name is Jonathan Garcia, but I go by Johnny. I am interning at The Gathering Place and am a junior applied computing major at the University of Denver. I want to be in the internship program to be able to learn more about what it means to have an impact on other individuals and on my community. Something to know about me is that I love acapella singing. Attached is also a portrait of me.


Alejandra Hernandez (Tier 2)

Alejandra Hernandez is a Feminist and Gender Studies major on the Pre-Med track who will be graduating in May from Colorado College. She enjoys spending time with her loved ones, reading Chicana literature, and dancing! Her time as an NPIP Intern working with the Strengthening Neighborhoods Program at The Denver Foundation was both rewarding and unforgettable. This year, she is returning as a Tier 2 Intern working with The Colorado Trust. She is incredibly humbled and excited to have been extended this opportunity!
