Our interns come from a variety of academic backgrounds, have and develop strong skill sets, and make meaningful contributions at their internship placements. Our interns have worked with various leaders in the nonprofit sector including Executive Directors, Board of Directors and Community Foundations. They gain experience in program development and management, strategic planning, grant writing, and use various interpersonal skills to work with the clients and stakeholders of their host organization. Many interns have continued working with their organization beyond the 8 weeks of their internship.
The Institute for Public Engagement celebrates the work our interns and host organizations are doing in the Winston-Salem community!
