I am a full time student seeking experience as an intern in a nonprofit organization that emphasizes education. I have a genuine interest in a future career in the nonprofit sector and I am looking to gain knowledge of the business, development, and fund raising aspects of this field. I have experience in a number of volunteer organizations in the Nashville, TN and Charlotte, NC areas where I have gained valuable communication and leadership skills while working with diverse groups of individuals. Through nonprofit organizations such as Young Life, the Boys and Girls club, and on campus service projects, I have learned how to be both a leader and a team player. I believe I can contribute these skills, as well as my passion for helping others, to an organization that has a goal of improving education in the community.


I am seeking an internship in the nonprofit sector while looking to simultaneously explore my interest in education.
